This project was a self promotion for my website (‘about’ page). I started out with an almost realistic sketch of myself, which I didn’t like (see sketch to the right). I decided to work the sketch over only this time more abstract.
The final result was an illustration of myself sitting on a high chair above New York, having a cup of tea while overlooking the rest of the world. I decided to not give myself eyes but to make the lips more dominant. It was just an idea to make it more fun and interesting.
