Your winner was Peregrine, who created a warped My Little Pony Universe, full of drugs, candy and cigarettes. Peregrine was raised in a hippie art commune in California, and a lot of the people she grew up with are no longer with us. While she seemed to love her childhood memories, there was a cheery and bright sadness to her piece that I absolutlely adored. Like the morning after mess from a great party of unicorns and drag queens.
Our loser this week was Ryan. Now, I haven't been a big fan of Ryan's work on the show, but I really like Ryan as a person. He tried to explore some heavy emotional topics (his relationship with his mother) while working on this challenge, but he was unable, with the time and materials constraints, to get a good piece of art out of it. He's a creative, fun fellow, and I think the group will miss him. Plus, look how cute he is. Seriously. Sometimes, I have reality TV crushes, and Ryan just has that sweet young art school guy preciousness all over him. Sigh. I'm still rooting for the sincere and talented Abdi for the win.
