Project:Moments Intercepted

"Karen Justl"

Occupation: illustrator & designer
Location: Toronto

Why does this project interest me?
...Karen Justl is fascinated by facial expressions and their hidden agenda. She judges by cut of the suit; as well as the cut of the jib. She is a Master of Design and an Honorable Painter. Her illustrations have been published across Canada. See them in subTerrain, a literary magazine published in stores NOW! For the (re)collection project I will be honing my spontaneous facial expression/body language drawing/illustration/improv skills...with an interdisciplinary response to the challenges! Drawings/Sketches/Animation
