"My name is Erica Chung, and I am currently in 8th grade. I get inspiration through everything, whether it be school, hanging out with friends, or when I am simply taking a walk, I get ideas rapidly. All these ideas are turned into drawings or stories; I really enjoy creating characters, giving them life and unique aspects, and I plan on doing something like that in the future. One person who has achieved this goal is Kohei Horikoshi, a mangaka who has created the immensely popular show, My Hero Academia. Right now, my biggest project is titled “Route 13”, which is a story I have been developing since 4th grade featuring lots of characters I have designed and written myself!"
"My name is Julia Campanella, I am in 8th grade. I love art, it gives me the chance to be free and creative to whatever I want. There is no right and wrong in artwork."
"I believe that my inspiration for this piece in particular is my love for the color red. Red I think can be interpreted as passion, love, or it could be something scary, which is why this color plays such a big part in this drawing."
"My name is Jayla St. Croix and I am 14 years old. I am in the 9th grade attending Walt Whitman High School. My drawing for Nightmare on Elm Street was inspired by Halloween and what reminds me of such. The colors I used in my skeleton like red, orange, purple, yellow, and black are colors that remind me of that time of the year. The shaded black gives me more of a scarier vibe."
