I can see several influences in this artwork, both intentional and some not so much.
I like the look of slight paranoia on my face as I look back over my shoulder.
I like the loose spindly lines of the hair especially - but really all of the lines share that quality.
I like the splattered effect that can be achieved by drawing directly with the ink dropper.
But when it comes down to it, this self-portrait started in a very simple place: I took a shower and just let my hair go wild once I got out. I started with a few errant lines here and there to represent how I looked, and before I knew it . . . I had this.
