Canada 150 Graffiti (True Maple)


Author Comments

Here is what I have created for an art assignment... The goal was to create a piece of graffiti that depicted the theme "Canada150". We were required to include a famous Canadian, a Canadian symbol and an iconic Canadian animal in our artwork. I chose to include the maple leaf (background), a beaver and of course, Ryan Renolds as Deadpool.



Deadpool/Ryan Renolds as a famous Canadian, check.
Beaver as a iconic animal, check.
Where's this maple leaf as the Canadian symbol?!? Ah, there it is....

So I attempted to find and figure all of that out without the help from your author comments. I never noticed the Maple Leaf until you mentioned it in your comments. To me, it kind of just blended in with the background because of the color scheme and lack of separation. It works though and doesn't make the submission any less cool. Also, my eyes might not be trained like a Canadians. Who knows?

What does the True stand for? Or is it True Maple? Is this a Canadian reference? The spheres were a neat addition to this piece. The beaver seems a little out of place, but because of the nature of the assignment, it's probably the best place for it on the submission.

I like the color scheme, but there could have been a little bit more variety with the color in the background. Like I mentioned before, I couldn't tell the maple leaf was there until after I was specifically looking for a maple leaf.

Probably one of my bad pieces to be honest, but thanks for giving your feedback on it, always appreciated... True maple, idk... I guess I was lacking creativity, I probably just chose that because everything else had already been done. The most popular choice was "Strong and Free" (This was a school art project btw) Anyways, thanks again.
