Illustrations about Anxieties
"On Deadly Ground"
The following project is about illustrating anxieties.
"What is your biggest fear?" - I asked my friends via e-mail. Out of all the responses I picked 7 anxieties and visualized them in different ways.
In the beginning my illustrations were very definite. During the process they developed into more abstract and open images. I worked with various techniques and in the end I used Indian ink on paper with my fingers being the brush. I focused on this technique and tried to find different visualizations for one and the same fear.
My insecurity to illustrate also turned out to be a great motivation. It helped me to open up and to overcome my inhibition with illustrating. It made me feel more self-confident and helped me to draw generously and uncontrolled.
