Typeface Illustration (Self-Portrait)


My goal for this assignment was to make it look as real as possible while ticking to the type-only requirement.

I did many of the shapes using parentheses and hyphens (such as the lips, eyeliner, and lashes). The iris and pupil of my eye are both lower case “o”, and for my hair and eyebrows, I used a lower case “l”. The blue exclamation points (that are somewhat mixed in with the hair) are my headphones.

My friend told me that I have a “I don’t care” quality about my face (which I agree with) and I wanted to show that a bit. Because that’s how I roll.
