This self-portrait was made while sitting at Chicago O'Hare Airport, waiting for a connecting flight to Kansas City. We had an extended layover, so I decided to invest a little more time in today's drawing than I had during the previous days of vacation. Personally, I love it.
I know there are all sorts of possible interpretations for this image. Frankly, I have no idea what it means; it's just one of those things that maybe I'll figure out eventually. The idea came to me about a week ago, and I've let the thought percolate for a bit before actually putting it on paper. I feel like I waited just long enough...
