subject (patatoïdes)

I created an illustration evolving around the philosophical concept of the subject for the philosophical magazine Leipziger Schriften n° 4.

What distinguishes us from others? Maybe having and affirming boundaries. What makes an object a subject? Self-awareness. As I like the French word for "potato shaped" - patatoïde - and that word ruminated in my head, i came up with this very simple page-filling comic-like drawing showing a bunch of patatoïdes, one of which opens its eyes, representing self-awareness.

The magazine is printed in black and white, therefore this illustration is too.
