Tattoos and Camouflages

These drawings were done as a final project in the 2nd semester DISA drawing course.  The notions of Tattoos and Camouflage were used to give these self-portraits other possible levels of interpretation.  In this project, the students’ silhouettes were projected full scale, onto the paper surface, creating a natural boundary between the revealed-self and the hidden-self.  The skin could be layered with ‘tattooed’ content, or the background could take over and contain meaningful elements.
