### Brainstorming

For this first assignment in Intro to Interactive Media, I had to create a self-portrait. This task seemed very daunting at first because I have never used p5js and I know that my design skills are not the best. However, this did not impede my motivation and I began by first looking for a good picture to try and replicate in a cartoonish manner with simple shapes. I settled on the picture below to use as my inspiration.

To give me an idea for the basic shapes, I drew a simple sketch after which I began coding.

### Coding

I separated the different features into different functions (mouth, ears, eyes, etc) and called them in the face function. All the sizes were relative and this helped me later in creating a **magnify** button that would allow you to zoom in to the image. This is what the final portrait looked like when I finished.

From this assignment, I learned to use some of the more advanced shapes like Bezier curves and also to use the mousePressed function to create some interactivity.

The code for the assignment can be found here on GitHub as well as below.
