I’m not gonna claim that this image is particularly original. It is true that when I sat down to make today’s self-portrait, I didn’t have a particular agenda or thought in mind. In fact, I essentially started with some loose scribbles . . . one thing led to another and . . . this drawing happened.
I do, however, like what the image implies: sometimes we all need to just keep our mouths shut for awhile. It reminds me of an old Twilight Zone episode where a loud mouth man who talks incessantly goes to extreme measures to win a bet by keeping quiet for a year.
It’s true, I’m not sure that a person should go this far, but the thought is in the right place!
