Gas Maske Stencil Collage on Canvas by Shepard Fairey

For one of my class assignments, I have to find something that relates art (because it is the main focus of my whole blog,) to something else that I am learning in one of my other classes. I decided to tie art to propaganda posters that we make in History. This photo by Obey Giant is a wonderful piece of art. I decided to choose this photo for my “school related” post because of the art that Obey Giant does. It is a very well done piece that can represent propaganda posters. I think that this can be a good topic because of how well this artist can make all different kinds of these amazing  paintings without a fail. Freedom-of-the-press-print_no_apWEB-500x719Another good example of how to tie art with history is this painting of a printer  by Shepard Fairey. This photo is one of the many paintings that  Fairey had created. This particular piece includes the caption,”Freedom of the press is guaranteed to those who own one.” I think that this is a good example to use for history because of all of the other inventions that were being made at that point in time. I realize that this is a very boring topic for a post, and I’m sure that no one in their right mind would read thins all the way through, but if you have gotten this far in reading this awful post thank you

7 years of Harry Potter taught me more about love and life than 12 years of Muggle school ever will.

One of the things that makes a book series as good as they are, is the time and art put into it. All of the different kinds of covers for just one Harry Potter book is a good example.  I have learned that there are different covers all over the world for the whole Harry Potter series.

For example this is a photo of only a few of the different covers for the “Sorcerers Stone,” ( The first book of the Harry Potter series). I love how all of the different places in the world have all of these different kinds of covers for the Harry Potter books. Personally, I don’t know an exact number of how many different book covers  here are for this particular series, or any other series for that matter. I want to keep searching for all of the different styles of covers and how they differ from other countries. I am currently reading “The Sorcerers Stone,” for about the tenth time. I know what your thinking, how could any one read the same series over and over. But I am literally obsessed with this series, which could be very surprising to people that don’t know me. In my opinion, it is really hard to choose which of the original seven is my favorite but if I absolutely had to choose I would probably have to go with “The order of the phoenix.” I don’t really know why I would choose this one, I guess it is because of how much detail that J.K Rowling put into the house of  Sirius Black. It is one of my favorite places in the books and the movie series right behind the Hogwarts castle itself.
