I posted the first half of my series, including the graduating seniors that inspired the works earlier but I kept the second part of the series under wraps. The bulk of those works included some of my current underclassmen in AP and Portfolio (three students) and then also some of my 3D-1 students that really went above and beyond to help me this year and/or to be kind to their peers...so I wanted to thank them. I had some forms I was waiting on, and also I wanted to wait until the last week of school to give those out...and they were kinda a surprise. I even made one for my colleague, Brent.
Well- surprise! Cat's outta the bag. They all were excited to receive their gift!
...and then I had some days left and I was trying to decide who I wanted to draw...and I didn't have to think about it too much because I looked to my immediate female support system.
Overall with this series it is overwhelmingly female. In fact- my original intention was to make it all female, but then I had two male seniors...and my colleague is a man. So I did make those exceptions, but the rest stayed true to my original intent- portraying those that inspire me, a large part focused on my students.
