Fluoro Suit

pink sitting

Found myself on the train with nothing but a highlighter to draw with. Takes me back to my days of high-top basketball boots, stonewashed denim and too-bright shirts. Might explain the recent purchase of a Human League album. Must be caught in time-slip.


Afro

Big hair

This is somewhat exaggerated. Big hair, many frills, much jewelry but (most important) – highly content.


Woodentop

Experiment in representing form through contours – similar to a map. The subject could be carved from a block of wood. I’m quite fond of the effect, which was largely accidental. In the ‘must try again’ category.


Bun Lady

bunlady

A hairstyle you don’t see too often these days. Reminds me of a (terrible) joke: did you hear about the woman who was electrocuted at a bakery? She stood on a bun and the currant ran up her leg. Boom boom. I’ll wager the lady in the picture would not approve.
