with GIMP, i posterized an image of my friend with her lips as the point of focus—red hot color. i traced each value with Inkscape. the pattern in the background is the interconection of a shape i’ve been working with. the shape resembles an indigenous design. having a Chicanx figure in the forefront brings meaning to the pattern i feel.
what i was going for was a reflection on how i currently look, always. then i postarized the image using GIMP and then i traced each value with Inkscape. the pattern in the background is something i’ve been working with for some time.
