put this scary piece up and took it down. basically started as a self portrait. the illustration board was crappy and I could not blend the charcoal like I usually do. So I scratched and stabbed it with a little hard eraser and this is what happened. There was some draped fabric behind me that sort of changed that garden hat I was wearing.
It’s more a self portrait of how I felt as opposed to a literal rendering of my features. trying to absorb some difficult reality at the time.
15 × 20″ charcoal and eraser on illustration board.
