Awesome Squiggles

Awesome Squiggles: Honors Art and Portfolio Art students shared work with art students at Austin-East High School for the Arts in Knoxville, Tennessee, through a Skype visit. Students on both ends participated in a global art challenge project where students create original art based on 4 squiggly lines and then share with others around the world.

These structures loosely represent something about each student. They are currently being used in a 36″ square, one-frame comic titled Bottletar and the Heroic. That will be followed by a prequel & sequel in the format of Abstract Comics. The results will form a triptych. Process, sequence, linear, non-linear narrative/story telling, construction and painting come into Play (play with a capitol P).
