"Can You Design Yourself?" is a new and very creative way of taking portraits, mainly based on the psychological and emotional status of the subject. Portraits are taken through personal objects that reflect the subject's emotions, problems and/or personality. This book represents an accurate research in art and design within the community and it creates a potential tool to be used in psychology and art therapy. After his first art book "The Great Kiss: Art, Design and Emotions", the author continues to demonstrate that art is a great media to express the way we feel inside. Other books in the series include "Kirimatuli: Art, Design and Subconscious" and "Dance With Me: Art, Design and Social Beliefs".
