Awkward title I know but…. this man I drew in Life drawing class sat for one hour; head forward hugging his knees. As I drew this man he drifted and his face softened, he was almost asleep. He is the Almost Sleeping Man.

I drew this many (many!) years ago, it is charcoal on butchers paper and has been lugged from place to place every time I have moved, he has lived in folio’s, under my bed, rolled up, been torn and rained on. Last year for Mothers Day I had him framed for myself, he now lives in my hall – just near the front door. I will post the original from photo at a later date. So now he lives on monitors all around the world.

When people walk in my house he is one of the first things they see, some people find him (all battered and torn) a little disconcerting – I kind of like that.

Here we are given the opportunity to own these wonderful insights into our human state; these remarkable images combine Lisa’s unique handmade graphic style often using embedded text and her trade mark ‘ faceless dolls’ to render us truly moved. These seemingly innocuous little people transport us into the core of our deepest emotions, hopes and fears.

    the almost sleeping (billy idol look-alike) in monitiors around the world would be happy with all the attention, I like watching men feeling rather sleepy or a sleep, they look adorable usually.. and I am sure the sleeping man must’ve looked as adorable

    Cool story – the journey of art that makes it famous almost as much (maybe more) than the work itself – created, stolen, saved, copied, bought, disappeared etc. This has a great feel to it. Interesting choice of colour for the Almost Sleeping Man (…continues the journey ;)
