at first, i just wanted to learn how to draw a messy bun, but that escalated into a project in which the subject is a girl who has been judged for her appearance all her life. what may at first look like typical facial features (eyebrows, lashes, nose, lips) are actually words that outline her face. phrases that make sense and some that don't, but all are things that she wants to tell the people who sneer at her for the clothes she wears and her overall thinness that is actually naturally attained.
basically, with whatever medium of art that i choose, i want to tell a story. i want to create depth in 2-dimensional beings and i want them to fly off the page and live. but most importantly, i want you to see that there is a story in everyone. in fact, everyone is a story. and simply looking at them and judging what they wear or what they look like isn't going to get that story told. so dig a little deeper. reach a little higher. and you'll get the prize.
