Andi Parent, Student Work

A drawing inspired by a tin can.

"Ancient-looking rusty tin can I hesitated in picking up somewhere in the woods. Held it in two fingers all the way home for fear of diseases. Possibly a hobo's. Since at least once a week you ask us to take a project on a date, I started to view this object as if it were a person. I felt as though this found object had the most character of all the objects gathered so I went the next step and gave it a life. It's an old and rusted can, used up and dried out. It made me think of a weathered old cowboy or vagabond eating food out of a tin, and what kind of person they were. I wanted to capture the tin's essence and personality into a portrait."
