"Chapter 1 - The Nature of the Problem" Seraphina Zweifel, Computer Illustration, 2017. "I decided to make my piece about Chapter 1: The Nature of the Problem, because I related to it the most. The chapter talked about artists can be repetitive, forget why they make art, and see the deeper meaning others fail to see in art. I really wanted to focus on these points in my piece. On the right side of the image, I drew a portrait of my brother in one of the styles I like to create graphic art in. This shows my repetitiveness in the sense that I like to stick to certain styles, which is not necessarily bad unless you don't explore your options. On the left side, I created an outline/sketch of my brother to show the process of creating art as well as losing the will to continue. Many artists have unfinished pieces simply because they give up on the piece, like the book discusses. In addition, I drew a cloud like shape with a person drawing inside. Again, I show the process of drawing through the sketchy figure. It is hard to tell, but the little person wrote on his paper "art" in three different colors. I wanted to show how some people do not "see" a piece of artwork. They don't see the meaning, the work, or struggles. They see simply what is in front of them. That is why I hid the word "art" in my piece. In addition, my brother has the colors in his left eye symbolizing him seeing the meaning and struggle. This piece means a lot to me, because it sends a message within a message that an artist will "see" and relate to." - Seraphina Zweifel .
