Self-portrait as a Dandy (Don’t be cross!), 2012

Sepia ink and pen on paper
21 x 15 cm

For me a self-portrait in whatever form and material is an act of exploration which overlaps the Self and the Other. Here the visual likeness to the model is a matter of inner feeling and self-esteem rather than of outer appearances. These 7 drawings were made as part of my usual routine of bursts of drawings followed by periods of no-drawing depending on the day, mood, season, sustainable will to life or lack of it.
