Graphic novels that are formalistic are trying to figure out how things work and in a sense can relate back to our way of life. Animist comics believe in the “pure transparency of content” and intuition. Lastly, iconoclast “emphasizes the authenticity of human experience and honesty.” McCloud firmly believes that all of these types of comics can convey knowledge to the reader and benefit the world. For example formalist comics can be used for science, and classicist can be used for art and literature. McCloud believes that comics are beneficial because it gives the reader a better picture of what the author is trying to get across.

Relationships impact and mold who you are, and in the story Walk Two Moons, the relationships that Sal had slowly guided her to the acceptance of her mother’s death.

Since their creation, 3-Dimensional artworks, commonly known as sculptures, have always intrigued it’s viewers. Like paintings, drawings, and photography, sculptures can be fine works of art. However, there is an aspect of sculptures that differ from 2-Dimensional artwork. Sculptures exist in space.

Tattoo’s show a sense of uniqueness, individuality, and are a truly beautiful work of art. Not only are they unique, but they often hold a deep meaning for the person who got tattooed.

Even though everything didn't go smoothly, I still feel that our group did a fantastic job on the game as a whole. Like I mentioned earlier, during the development of Heist my job was primarily board design. With the design of the board I strived to create a layout that was easy to understand and constantly encouraged interaction between players. I also wanted the board to be correct size proportionally to character movement so that players would be able to get out of peculiar situations should they arise. This caused a minor conflict in which I had to design a board that was large enough for players
Identity is defined as the fact of being who or what a person or thing is. Many people claim that through arts, we can find out an identity or identities of the artists.

However I believe that while this may have made a contribution, it was primarily Van Gogh’s boredom with his study which drove him to paint this. It appears as though he has used the skeleton in his anatomy class to place the bones correctly, and then, as almost a direct gibe at the mundanity of his college, has decided to put a comedic twist on the piece.

For many artists, painting graffiti is the only way they feel that they can accurately express what they have lived through, what they are passionate about, and their emotions. Most street artists’ motives for creating there works of art are not so that they participate in deviant or criminal behavior. Therefore, graffiti or street art should not be considered criminal, but rather it should become a recognized art form. More cities should also begin setting aside designated buildings and walls, etc.
