After four months of labor, my burpy, bloody blog is born! You can tell we're related by all it's imperfections (misspellings, tactless commentary, the horrible way it dresses itself, etc), and also by it's strong points (if you find any, feel free to point them out).
While hurling myself through the sweaty battles of the flu and salmonella I got some heartbreaking news from a close friend. After spending some time on my knees and emptying myself of tears (or so I thought at the time) I could do nothing more but draw. I grabbed some markers, a pencil, my ever-ready pen, and made these three self-portraits.
