What's with all the self-portraits? (Besides the fact that this Jess Smiley character is so self-absorbed?) I think it all comes down to the fact that "self" is the only thing I can really gauge. This picture was made two years ago with a film camera, some drawings, tape, a mirror, and a borrowed camera. My hair was shorter then, and I always wore that dark blue jacket and a Walkman. Talking Heads "Little Creatures" was my favorite album at the time.
Last year this time it was Tom Petty's "Wildflowers".
Now I don't listen to music much.
Why did I tell you that?
