After spending about two hours brainstorming ideas, I decided to just let go and start drawing whatever comes to mind. I drew a cage in which a prisoner is being held. Since the execution was horrible even though I spent much time on it, I stopped for a while to brainstorm ideas again. Suddenly, proverbs started to pop in my head. First, I tried to draw something that explains ”the grass is always greener on the other side.” Knowing that this might be difficult, and after an additional hour trying to get the drawing done, I decided to think about other proverbs.
“One bad apple spoils the bushel,” a proverb I have been hearing from my teachers since elementary school quickly came to mind. This assignment, although took more time to finish, was to me unique in how it led me to draw and think about things which I have not thought about before.
