Self-portrait on Rives BFK in charcoal ≈1999.



Note the brown stains around the edges. I think those are rat or mouse pee stains. That’s what happens when you have to store your drawings in an attic for too many years. Or, I guess, what would happen if you fed your pet mice and rats lots of booze and then gave them a little dancing party on your drawing.
My point is, rat piss, really universe?
I chose this self-portrait to post because of how non-creepy I look.
