Idea Development

I revisted the self portrait illustrating the story of myself and the 'head wrap incident' building on the idea I connect bright repeated patterns with the feeling of safety and that during the incident that I was trying to illustrate, I was made to feel very unsafe. 

I decided to take a much more digital and less expressive approach with the lines I used being more uniform as I though that the patterns here needed to take the viewers focus.

I’m interested in identity, sociology and culture and work across a range of mediums.
