The following is an image of the name tag I made for my desk in the IAr program at UNCG:
This piece stands up in a triangular prism shape on my desk. I chose to add things I felt "defined" or "described" bits of my personality. In doing that, I added yarn balls, as I'm an avid crocheter, and a "self portrait" of myself thinking about both the IAr program and crochet hooks. I chose to create the self portrait in a sort of a cartoonist format because, prior to coming into the IAr program and on the rare chance I did draw, I preferred a more cartoon style vs. realistic.
