Upcycle Project: Inspiration and Progress

Last class we created drawings based off given ideas. My team and I worked on creating a drawing that included minimalism and an electric toothbrush. As seen in the image above, I focused on creating the toothbrush while simplifying the overall design.

For my upcycle project I will incorporate plastic trash, cardboard, and other resources that would otherwise be thrown away. My goal is to create an image of land and ocean using plastic, metal, and other types of waste. This project will convey the problem we currently have in society with disposing trash and ocean plastic waste. This will also serve and a nice art piece I can hang up around my house.

    Great idea. I like how you thought of using recycled materials to present the idea of harming the environment with waste. I think the final result will be beautiful.

    I really like how you were inspired by the effects of plastic bags on the environment. I believe that this idea could be turned into a beautiful piece of art, and educational as well if executed properly. Have you thought about the material you’ll be using as the base of the image?

  • I like your idea of making full use of the recycle materials. Instead of throwing them away, it’s great to make something out of them to add value. I also like how everyone who sees your work in the future will remember to recycle/ produce less waste.

  • This is such a unique idea! I have seen pieces of artwork out of shattered mugs and different types of glass, but never one that combines all of the recycled materials that you mentioned. Are you using an artist for inspiration? Have you decided where you will be getting the recycled materials from?
