Me, Myself, and I

My self portrait was based on this image that my friend took of me. I liked the side profile and thought it might look good as a black and white line drawing.

Here it is after I used Adobe Illustrator to create a path to the lines. As you can see I tried to get in the details of the folds of the hijab.

Here it is in my attempt in processing. When the image is first displayed, it’s displayed without a face. When you click on the image, the facial features appear. This is supposed to create a message but I hope to continue playing with this piece and adding text to convey the message I want. It was definitely difficult to work with curved lines, so the details in the scarf are not fully drawn in yet.
