Today I interviewed Mercedes Curtis-Walker, who is a really good artist. 

 

I asked Mercedes if this drawing was just for fun or was a assignment.  “ A little bit of both, since I’m in AP art we have a lot of freedom with what we do, so I came up with the idea talked to Mr. Smith about what the medium should be and just did it!”, she explained.   I then asked her why she chose to draw this particular image. She says “ well I was on Pinterest and I saw a piece of artwork that kind of inspired me. In the artwork the skin color was pink and she was very much like a monster. And I really just wanted to do something similar but still make it original” She also said she used oil pastels to draw this This drawing just caught my eye when I saw it so I wanted to know more about it.
