Week 3-Caricature Yourself!
So as I approached this project I was thinking of it as self-portraiture. To make it able to be classified as a caricature I thought to emphasize my personality rather than physical features. I often use old medical text books as reference material. I have been currently obsessed with outdated sciences that used physical features as fact to promote their viewpoints such as phrenology. Phrenology was a science that used to measure bumps on the skull as triggers to identify and explain personality traits. I thought it would be interesting to use this idea to map out my brain according to the interests that consume my thoughts. Its a simple idea and simple drawing done in india ink and water colors but I think it is able to clearly communicate certain aspects of my personality that I like to highlight. Enjoy!
