I finally worked up the courage to try out some (Ralph) Steadman-esque pieces. I went home and set up my inks and water and paper on a garbage bag in the front yard and just threw stuff on paper. This is the basis for a texture; I'm going to draw and paint on top of these.
Oh ho! Another self portrait! The one thing about my own art that I genuinely find intriguing is how I depict myself. Selfish, yes, but I never claimed to be anything other than! There's usually a great emphasis on the glasses or the eyes and I'm not sure why I do that. Freckles too. I try not to depict myself too far removed from reality; that is to say slender and graceful and whatnot. That's not me!
