That awkward moment when, in attempt of a creative icebreaker, the last q of the class survey asks you to draw yourself.
This sends me into an existentialist crisis. I’m in a creative advertising course. I’m an art director. What the shit am I supposed to make of this?
Do I draw something realistic? Do I add the dimensions and contours of my bone structure? Do I even have contours? Has my fat face syndrome covered my contours - will the professor think I’m a vain ass to draw myself skinnier than I am? What if he thinks I have self-image problems?
Is this a trick question? Maybe he wants me to draw what I THINK I look like on the inside? How my brain works. What makes me. Do I draw words, thoughts? There will have to be food.
I look around class: some stick figures here and there. Girl next to me draws herself with no hair.
I give up & just doodle. Fck it. I’ll prove myself later.
