Iconic me

Friday, July 1st, 2011

Not completely happy with how this turned out, but that’s mostly my perfectionism speaking. For the most part I’m just upset I couldn’t find a way to make all the circles co-centric; you can barely notice, though, so it isn’t much of an issue.

Well, this is the icon to represent me. A brain in some sort of maze. There’s lots of meaning here, but it’s mostly about the idea that anything that goes on in my mind has to go through all sorts of hurdles before ever appearing in the real world. It goes back to my perfectionism, but it goes far beyond that. It really is like my brain is an enclosed area, and ideas – both creative ideas and just simple things like conversation points – have to go through a long, harsh filtering process before passing through. Everything has to be thoroughly thought out, and nothing can be spontaneous. No wonder I called myself “The Recluse”.
