For this week’s Classmate Conversation, I talked with, Alyssa Bui (https://lolyssblog.wordpress.com/ ) about fan art made for Demi Lovato and a controversial piece. Alyssa’s thoughts on fan art was that she likes it because people can take things and put their own flare on it. She said she likes how they get inspired by others. We both agreed that we didn’t think Demi Lovato’s reaction to the fan art was justified. She emphasized the idea that art can be whatever it wants to be. Others shouldn’t criticize or be hurt by fan art. As an artist she should understand that criticism doesn’t matter.
