AP Studio Artist – Jacob Blaszczyk (STM ’20)

You can’t read the title, can you? It says, “Artist Statement.” It was my mistake to use that font and that was the focus of my sustained investigation for the past few months, the mistakes we all make as humans and how we can laugh at them instead of always taking them so seriously. Nowadays, people often put themselves down for the mistakes they make, I should know because I am guilty of it. That is why I have chosen create pieces of myself in the act of making mistakes from my past. I also chose to create this cat character as a symbol of comic relief.

Through my SI, I attempt to show people that mistakes will hurt you in the heat of the moment, but, once it’s over, it’s just another funny story to tell your future friends and family. I have learned that not everything in life has to be taken so seriously and it is okay to have a laugh once in a while, especially when you’re laughing at yourself.
