Einstein and Art

"The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources."
--Albert Einstein

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progess, giving birth to evolution."
-- Albert Einstein

I always knew Einstein was a smart guy.

"The Contemporary Human"

This drawing was to be a triptych. The goal of this project was to create a character that is interesting, compelling and rich wiith detail that dramatically displays a visual story using myself as the subject. We were assigned to create a self portrait, a landscape and a stil life and after the creation of each image we had to connect them in some way. The landscape is done using a building from NIU and the still life objects contain objects found in the art rooms at school.

Here is an image of all three drawings together:
