For this project you will draw your self portrait and combine it with zentangles in a creative way of your choice. You will use a photograph reference of yourself so please find a photo of yourself you would like to use, take a new one or we can take one in class (a digital photo is best so you can make color and size adjustments in Photoshop is needed before printing it out). “Zentangles” is a fancy word for doodles put into repetitive structured designs. Think about how you can make your zentangle designs unique to you. What could they symbolize about you and your interests or life experiences? Make them thoughtful and deliberate.
Here are some examples if you need help getting started (click the image to enlarge):
