As for my Visual Analysis Task, I have chosen to write about this image on the left. This piece was recently created by Shepard Fairey a street artist.

I would have to be honest in saying that over the course of my college career, my standard of writing has seen a fair amount of variation. In courses where I observed that the instructor was not as rigorous in grading writing assignments, I allowed my writing to become more lax. This was evident when I received the grading and comments for the first assignment for this class. My grade was decent, but after analyzing the feedback, I knew that I was capable of producing better work. Many of the mistakes made were thoughtless, avoidable errors. The dissatisfaction I felt towards my efforts on the first assignment motivated me to strive for better results on future assignments. While I did not have very many serious issues to address in my writing, I felt as though the few improvements that were made have a significant impact on my quality of writing.
The object is an Ancient Greek ceramic pot known as an Attic vase produced using clay. Having looked on the British Museum database, a ‘stamnos’1 vase used for storing liquids. ‘The vase was decorated using a fine clay slip…a liquid mixture of clay and water which would eventually turn black during the firing process’’2.
On the eve of my grandfather's funeral, as my father, my sister, and my cousin and I stood around a pile of jerseys, t-shirts, and polos that once belonged to my grandfather, we each claimed a few for ourselves. I claimed a blue and white baseball shirt that reads “Cosmos” on the front, perhaps the team name, and “Annen” on the back. Whenever I wear this shirt I get emotional, it is, besides photographs, one of the last tangible things I have of my grandfather.
The darkness is slowly scaring me making me feel overwhelmed. I can’t see anything. I feel suffocated and musty with all these boxes stocked next to me and on top of me. I’ve been here for so long and I feel so hopeless and useless. Then suddenly a bright light shines on me and I finally feel free from this very comfortless home. I wish someone would open this lid on top of me so I can breath in fresh air. But here I am staying strong and just patiently waiting. Then suddenly, I am lifted, opened, and place on top of a flat surface. I feel so nervous. I am hearing human voices. My wish is granted. It is my time, and I am free!
An alliance known as the Coalition formed during the Napoleonic War period in Europe to combat the rising French hegemony. Coalition forces consisted of the four of the many major powers during this time period, Prussia, Russia, Austria, and Great Britain. Within this alliance, each nation that was involved was committed to fighting a common enemy, put was motivated to do so by different reasons. Of these reasons, one country, in particular, stood out among the other countries involved, Great Britain . Great Britain was seen as a country motivated only by self-interest and one who calls upon its allies to wage its wars. Author Michael Duffy supports this assertion in his article titled “Britain as a European Ally, 1789-1842” when he quotes Lord Grenville in stating, “We are represented as making war, and inciting all other nations to join us, merely for

A man with rustled auburn hair yanks open the door of the coffee shop. He gazes at his glossy black shoes as he steps in line. People watch as he shifts his weight from foot to foot, not able to stand still. Once he reaches the counter, he orders an extra-large coffee with whip cream and six creamers. The sassy girl behind the counter wears a baffled look, but he is completely oblivious. Failing to look the cashier in the eye, he takes his order and carefully carries the colossal caffeinated drink out the door. A typical day for someone with Asperger’s usually comes with its difficulties. Social interactions may be challenging and behaving “normal” is next to impossible. The eye opening memoir Look Me in Eye written by John Elder Robison,
In this C-print portrait photograph of a Saint Joseph ballet dancer from Orange County, California, the subject matter is the person, Stephany. She is pictured wearing a very intense red hue Guess sweater, an almost blank expression on her bare, natural face, and she is standing, posed with a slight lean inward to the left but her gaze is straight ahead. Her facial expression is soft, and there is a complete lack of subject matter in the background. The contrasting value difference in the Guess sweater she is pictured wearing and the whitish-gray empty background keeps your eyes focused on the subject.

The picture is gritty and looks as if someone scrubbed a regular black and white image of a woman with a scrub brush of some sort. It is hard to tell if there is an overlaying image that is covering the woman's face or if it is just supposed to be her hair. Her nose and lips are a bit on the larger and thicker side, she may have been intended to be African American or Hispanic. Some of the wisps around her face seem feather-like. The image only shows her from just below her shoulders and up and it seems like she may have on sunglasses. The image also has quite a bit of white background which is not that common for artworks to have, typically the artist tries to fill in each part of their canvas with the image or wit hanother color besides white.
