Sultan of Swat

My original influence was Banksy, a graffiti artist. Although a sculpture of Babe Ruth and graffiti seem to have nothing in common, through my process I began to believe they do. Babe’s most inspiring quote in my mind is, “Never let the fear of striking out get in your way.” I think Banksy lives by this message because even when he knows that he could easily get caught in the act or that his work is going to be covered up immediately, he never lets it get in his way of doing what he loves and believes in. I’m pretty happy with the way my project came out. I think it was a very good learning experiment and gave me good insight into what college is going to be like.
