Self Portrait of DC-Tiki by DC-Tiki Self Portrait of DC-Tiki by DC-Tiki
A self portrait I made of myself last year which clearly illustrates my interest in the mysterious world of 'mondo exotica' lounge music and the 1950s tiki craze.

Very original and dynamic self portrait, the colour scheme and flow of the interacting elements are in particular great. I'd say this was a good experiment in composition, too, as everything comes together nicely with a visible central visual point for the piece.

Thanks, yeah I played around with the symmetrical layout for a bit on this one. I remember that at one point there was even a retro-bamboo design around the outside to frame it but that started to result in a very clunky and cluttered image so I stripped it back to a bit more of an organised jumble of elements. The overall idea was always to arrive at something akin to a polynesian tarot card look in my own illustrative style.

I do see how a bamboo design would work, but I think you made a good decision - this more streamlined version works best.
I enjoy seeing modern, individualised versions of interesting classic sources such as the tarot card, so this was very eye-catching.
