I took some of the photos my mum brought back from Sydney and did some illustrations of myself and of other possessions like my old swimsuit and my first pair of shoes. I use watercolour a lot in my own work so I wanted to use it to paint myself and then I decided to be more simplistic with the clothing. I like the way they look, almost empty because they won’t be worn again but they are worn from being old and hidden away for years.
I really want to use these or display these illustrations in the final degree show, I think they’d look nice in frames if they aren’t used in my final piece. Maybe I’ll even do some more of them and have a whole collection of photos of me done in different ways.
