Every artist needs a self portrait, right?
Well, maybe that’s not true, but I wanted a new one anyway. I decided to try this out because returning to creative work after welcoming a new human into the house is not always easy. I needed a low-stakes task, and this seemed to be it. I didn’t have to invent anything on this one, other than my little friends who are hanging out with me, because I have photos of myself. Reference materials are a good thing!
I know it looks like me, at least a bit, because when I showed Kingsley (who is 4), and asked him who it was, he said, “It’s YOU, DADDY!” If your 4 year old knows what your art is, then you’ve succeeded in communicating visually.
