the little psychotic book
after brain storming, collecting ideas and data, finalising the project's sections and assigning a certain illustration 
to each paragraph, i then began to experiment with the illustration style. i began with a computerised illustration 
which its clean lines and clean cuts were then discarded as it does not give off the topic's essence, i then moved on 
to hand illustrations which were more sketchy and imperfect and ended with illustrating using my left had as it 
gave off a more chaotic feel and reflected the subject's fragility.




illustration book.​​​​​​​
this book was divided into three sections; a brief about schizophrenia, a true life story of a schizophrenic, 
and  finally, poems by schizophrenic individuals. each section had it's one kind of paper to reflect on the 
fragility of its given content. each copy was then hand illustrated rather then mass produced  






thesis book.

the thesis is a collective of all the research that has been made in order to validate this project. i first 
started with a base of scientific research on the subject containing what,type, how, why, percentage, 
treatments and so on. i then linked schizophrenia to art through a validated theory, then carried on with 
studying famous schizophrenic artists and painters and their style developments through the disorder's stages. 
moving on, i then studied self portraits of schizophrenic individuals in order to understand their style, i then 
looked for different schools of art and art movements searching for the suitable one in which the style of 
illustration will be based on, "art brut" was then chosen. finally, stages of the design were then added and 
explained along with documentation of the design process and final outcome.





covers and spin.

the book covers were made of two extreme materials; one very rough and the other was very smooth, 
this was also a decision based on reflecting the subject through touch. the back cover was then hand painted 
in a number of various techniques to reflect on the individuality and to make the book more personal.
thank you.
