This is a series based in a self portrait originally drawn in traditional media and then imported to the iPad Pro. Apparently I wasn’t in a good mood when I drew this! The original dictionary page I drew it on is visible in a few of the variations but the rough metal background “canvas” predominates. Because of my music background I always think of this sort of series as a Theme And Variations, as one might do with a melody. The character or mood of the work changes with each variation.
