I found this sheet in a pile of papers I had thrown in a box in the scramble to pack my desk up at the end of the year. I had gotten angsty and ripped and crumpled a piece of perfectly innocent cardstock, taped it back together, poured/threw/squished ink on it. It was a nice 3 minute release before going back to work. I never did anything with it after.
Bored with the “Office” rerun I was watching, I started mindlessly drawing curved lines. In those intersections, I began to see faces, broke out the charcoal, and had at it. This is the final result. It also was the inspiration behind Desktop Musings #2. I’m really craving expressive, dark, twisted art lately, and it’s about time I crank it out!
