Day 116

As always, I suppose there could be many meanings to this self-portrait. However, since it has already been grossly misinterpreted before I even had a chance to share it publicly, allow me to break my own rule and give an explanation.

I like to consider myself a work in progress, but if I could only change one thing about my personality, I believe I would choose to eliminate my snoring problem. It's no secret that this is an issue for many people, and it wreaks all kinds of havoc for the person who is snoring and anyone who has the misfortune to sleeping in their proximity .

I once heard a person snoring so vigorously and sleeping so restlessly that it almost seemed like they had thick chains wrapped around their head and they were fighting in their sleep to break free. Ever since that moment, this particular image has been - to me - the visual personification of the sound of snoring. This is the first time that I've actually drawn it and I think that the loose brushstrokes of ink add very nicely to the feeling I was going for.
