- Goal of the Project?
“Shell of a Man” was an final project for a drawing class in college. The goal of this project was a “Self Portrait”. At the beginning of the class we were asked to draw a self portrait of ourselves. It was after we turned in that assignment we learned we would be also creating another self portrait for our final. The goal was to show growth throughout the class and a chance to show off our creativity.
As you can see I did not draw what one might expect to see in a self portrait. I took the more creative approach and went outside the box. Using a photograph I took of myself I created a unique perspective on what I was feeling and experiencing at the time.
