ANXIETY SELF PORTRAIT / GIFs
 
 
I did this projcet for the illustraton class I took at the Academy of fine arts and design here in Ljubljana. The challenge was to create a psychological self-portrait, using different techniques.
I chose to do a GIF series, using drawing, vector graphics, green screen, video, ...

 
When choosing the aspect of myself I wanted to portray, I chose my anxiety issues that I have.
I didn't want to make a morbid, sad GIF series - I wanted it to show how silly my fears actually are.

I also made flip books for the semester exhibition.
 
 
THALASSOPHOBIA
An intense and persistent fear of the sea. It is a fear of large waves, fear of distance from the land as well as fear of the vast emptiness. Thalassophobes might not be afraid of the sea per se; they are simply afraid of encountering sea creatures. Oceans are vast and relatively unexplored and people already suffering from anxiety disorders fear it due to its “mysteries”.

 
NYCTOPHOBIA
An irrational and severe fear of darkness. People with nyctophobia may feel uneasy just by thinking of being alone in a dark room. They can’t help thinking of the worst situation that may happen in the dark.

CYNOPHOBIA
An abnormal fear of dogs - in my case just big dogs. I don't mind the small dogs, but if the dog is higher than my knee hight I feel a bit uneasy.

SOCIAL ANXIETY
A discomfort or a fear when a person is in a social interaction that involves a concern of being judged or evaluated by others. In my case I have a problem with meeting new people - I just get so awkward that it is impossible to make a normal first impression.
