Description - the brief was to create a book that portrayed some kind of narrative, I chose to look at the obsession and transformation of someone who wanted to become a certain celebrity. I chose Danny Trejo because he has very interesting and distinguishable features, but also because I personally find him interesting and wanted to make it easier to take on this persona of an obsessive fan. The final part of the narrative is the full transformation of wearing the mask, which is handmade from latex and showing that the character will live their daily life as Danny Trejo.
My life is what it is and of course I’ve been different in my choices but I don’t do it out of pleasure or pathology, I do it because I think it’s my duty as a human being. I live in this world, I want to know what’s going on, I want to be with the people I think I’m like. In meaningful and painful situations, I want to be where I think it’s important to be; where things are at stake.
