RED PEN: A PORTRAIT OF MY BROTHER




Red Biro on A2 paper. A memorial to my brother's beard.
I arrived back home from Sydney to be greeted by this mammoth of a beard and a happy confident brother. Only two days after, my regretful bro was baby faced once again. You know what they say, if your brother doesn't have a beard, you've got a sister. This artwork explores, much like many of my other works, the power that hair can have on your self confidence.

FINELINER DOT WORK


I started this A2 beast of my grandfather a few years ago and only just revisited him. Can't imagine how many hours and hand cramps this took but here it is, and yes, it is entirely made up of dots, no cheating!
