For a work in the third year of graphic design, I faced my huge fear of spiders. Before this work, I could not even look at a picture of a spider. My anxiety has severely limited my life and so I have decided to write a work about my spider phobia, to overcome my great fear with a self-experiment. Part of this self-experiment was to look closely at spider pictures and to draw them. At the end of my work, I managed to get a tarantula on my hand during a scare seminar at the Zurich Zoo.
