I had a lot of fun doing this art assignment. There was a lot of room for messing up. In fact the more imperfect the pictures and stamps were, the more fun they were to print. I really enjoyed carving into the rubber block; it was a first for me. At first I had a hard time choosing an item. I didn't want something too simple but at the same time I didn't want anything with too many words and shapes and angles. I chose the Pepsi bottle because it was in between what I wanted. I loved the curves of the bottle and simplicity of the design. I knew that after I created it, anyone could guess what it was. I was able to turn a normal Pepsi bottle into a fun size pop print that opened your eyes and mind.
