I noticed I hadn’t posted this one here yet.
One of our tasks was to create a satire (free subject choice).
Now, regarding the subject;
What I chose for this task is a bit less known than discrimination, war etc…
These days kids often get labeled in class, not by their name, but by whatever
disorder they carry. Be it ADHD, autism etc… Please don’t misunderstand, of course
it’s important to pay attention to a child if there’s something wrong with their health
but that still doesn’t mean every single word or action has to perfectly organized.
It’s a bit hard to explain my exact feelings regarding this, but a child is still a child
and should be seen as such. Nowadays, if there’s even a tiny problem, children immediately
get taken to a doctor, get a “disease” written down and problem solved! Most teachers
that deal with younger children already have it hard, but now they need to become
doctors as well. Children are no longer seen as “who they are” but as “what the papers say”.
Art wise, it was pretty fun to do this. I actually had this idea in my head for a little
while longer, so this task came at the right time. I do not draw children that often &
the anatomy was a bit hard (with the arms holding the name plates on their back. I’m aware there’s a tiny mistake)
but the practise helped me get better I guess. I tend to get a bit lost in details, so the
smaller amount of lines & simple background were also a good practise.
