Two-Year-Old Van Gogh

In keeping with the theme of my blog, I wrote my essay on the need to draw tighter boundaries around what we consider art. I wrestle with the idea that everyone can be an artist and what that does to art as a discipline.

My intention with the design of this file was to make it look juvenile, which I mostly tried to accomplish with the color scheme and title font type. To further emphasize the point of my essay, I made the paragraphs descend from left to right to represent the way art as a discipline has descended in quality. The background, "IS THIS ART?" is the final staple in making my point. I propose that this silly little page could be considered art, knowing that there is no real standard to say whether it is or isn't.
