Congressional Art Competition 2021

Edwin Ruvalcaba
Magic Crab

For this work, I used black ink pens and one gel, I used a lot of cross hatching to add shadows and details. The theme of this work was an altered perspective. I wanted to make it seem like the crab was a hill and that the cabin is just sitting on top, with the people unaware that the crab was there. The goal was to bring attention to the fact that often we are in our own world, not thinking about the bigger picture. Our perspective is limited to our own world view.
