i used markers to color in my emptiness person. i colored him grey to show how he's not happy. i choose the pictures off the I Internet because i thought it would be more affective to show actual picture of hungry children and the affects it has has them.
Hunger has always been a big deal for me. for me, growing up with both parents having jobs, I wasn’t ever starving. However, i hate seeing and hearing the stories and picture of the poor children that die every couple seconds because of this huge deal. There are many organizations that are in the fight to end hunger. Action Against Hunger is a well-known organization. It’s helped many people in major hunger spots like Africa and some places in Asia. Fighting this horrible issue is important to me because I don’t want kids to feel empty.
Through my artwork, I really wanted to exaggerate the issue. I started out drawing a picture of a skink person. I drew him gray because I wanted to show that this is not a happy situation and when you think of grey u usually think of sadness. Then I decided to draw the stomach of the person. But, I had to show that it wasn’t full, therefore the “emptiness” written in it. I didn’t want it to be just a picture of a make believe person. So, I went onto the Internet and printed picture. The pictures show how bad this situation really is.
