Wrapping Paper Using the Letter "Y"

In my graphic design class, the first project we had was to work with one letter to create a wrapping paper. Some people used "l" or "s," but I decided to use the letter "y."

Digital Self-Portrait

This semester in my graphic design class, my professor gave us a project to create a self-portrait.
