Trichotillomania

2011

From the Artist

Medium: Mixed Media – Digital, ink pencils, and watercolor

This is one of my pieces from my AP-2D concentration, focused on mental disorders. Part of requirements of the concentration was have a visual progression throughout it, so I chose to start with completing digital works and progress to combining digital and traditional mediums. This piece is one of the later ones in the concentration, so it exhibits minimal digital elements with an emphasis in traditional mediums.

To depict the disorder of trichotillomania, I digitally edited the model’s hair to give her a partially bald appearance. I then rendered a pattern of locks of hair in the background and dripped watercolor in the chosen color scheme at the top of the page to tie the piece together.
