“Without a Home, Without Love”
To create my artwork I used sharpie markers and colored pencils. Also, I used a pencil for shading, and sparkles to draw attention to the tears. This issue affects the world because when there is an issue for one person, we make it the issue for all of us. There are many homeless people in the world and a lot of people are trying to help those in need. This issue is important to me because I see a lot of homeless people in Chicago and I can’t bear to be put in their place. I feel really bad for them because a lot of them are helpless. Another reason why this is an important issue to me is because I help out at the P.A.D.S site a lot. Usually I help set up and one time I got to serve the food. When I did they all looked so thankful, but at the same time they looked really sad. To symbolize the issue I wrote a lot of questions and quotes to make the person looking at it really think about this issue. Also I drew some signs, a lot of the ideas for the signs were from signs that I have seen before in my life. More images that I chose to draw were of sad homeless people, this was to show the sadness in their faces and the conditions they have to walk around in. The colors I chose were mostly blues and purples to show sadness, but I also had a variety of colors besides those.
