these are the latest field trip sketches. i have never tried drawing so many moving people in a sketch. it was quite challenging. they move so fast and it was not easy to catch the details. so i drew the figures by experiences and imagination. in these sketches, some figures are huge , while others are quite small. in this way, the space can be created.

i have got a simple conclusion that human being are easily to be tamed, just like dogs. there are over 300 kinds of dogs because people trained and choose the dog they preferred. human beings can also be trained and chosen, and they have been trained by the governor or powerful humans. i think it was necessary to train people as people need to united and conqure the nature in order to get resource and survive. but when there are not enough resource to support all the humans on the planet, it is a bad idea to train people. personally, i think everyone is chosen by the god and everyone should be allowed to choose what kind of life he or she wants. when everyone has his or her own idea about the world, there would be millions of possibilities and that means, we will have more ways to discover the world and know the world netter. in that case, we will approach to more varied resources. maybe in the last day , we will meet the creator of the universe.
