Pen and graphite on paper. A parody of Alexandre Cabanel’s famous painting, “The Birth of Venus”, the piece illustrates the destructive nature of homework and procrastination. **Not to be confused with Bronzino’s “Venus, Cupid, Folly and Time” whose title was borrowed only to fit this context.
Amy Chen is a senior Life writer and artist for the Reckoner. Her favourite colour is the sky, and she spells using OU instead of just the O because she was born a Canadian and not a monster. Every morning, she religiously pours frozen blueberries into her cereal, finding the slow process of the milk freezing over each individual blueberry endlessly satisfying. An unironic Kanye West fan, her current guilty pleasures include (but are not limited to) watching "The Best of Cardi B" compilation videos, biting into string cheese without stringing it, and following Cool 3D World's Facebook page.
