<Welcome, 2017! I wish for a prosperous year for everyone.>
I don’t do many self-portraits, and I’ve been wanting to do some to explore different aspects of myself. Another thing that this piece depicts is my insomnia. I am constantly tired, whether I got two or 12 hours of sleep. I’ve felt really drained lately, so I used art to show it.
I filled up one of my water pens with diluted ink and went to town, making a cartoony, simplified version of my face focusing on a look of fatigue.
Here it is, pictured with a sketchbook and candle.
