Artwork 1: Essay by Darah“The themes of my drawing are music and space. It is music because it’s the Beatles waling on Abbey Road,. It’s space because it’s a literal respect of space. My drawing is inspired by the Beatles because they have been an inspiration to many people. I did space because space is awesome.” 

Artwork 2: Essay by Blaine“We derive our ideas of equality from the law too much. IT should be the other way around, form law FROM equality. Also, justice is sort of a branch from equality ergo justice cannot always be derived from law. Law, in itself, is supposed to be dynamic, meant to change as society itself changes.” 

Artwork 3: Essay by Clark“For my Dream Rocket, I dream a Gundam riding a rocket. Gundam is a giant robot so it fits in technology and science. I used pattern in the background. I used smoke in the rocket to indicate movement. I used an expanded face o f the background as a means of “reflection” of events that will come and go.”
