This self-portrait was made at the end of a long day. I was tired and ready for sleep. My hair was a bit of a mess, although I probably exaggerated it a bit.
I'm not sure where the abstracted imagery comes from. My first thought when looking at this drawing after waking up this morning was a bit of a surprise - I really didn't like it at all! But as of this writing - with the drawing right in front of me - there's something about it that I find oddly appealing. There's perhaps a bit too much element of "amusement park charicature" but I can deal with that on occasion.
With all of that said, this self-portrait was made at the end of a fabulous day which brought many wonderful new experiences...
