Illustration Friday: "Alone"
In A Mental Corner, 2005 • Blue Col-Erase, Fine Line Black and Orange Sharpie®, Staedtler Pigment Liner, rubbing alcohol and Photoshop®
I was in this mental state last night...it seems I enjoy being miserable sometimes. I was reminded of the many lonely nights before I met girlfriend when I would stay up until 5 AM doing nothing vital. Truthfully, I still did that after I met her, just less frequently. I was a little less depressed.
I wanted to depict the "alone" mental state above without drawing myself because I'd truly end up disgusted with myself. I draw myself constantly, so this would've hit too close to home. There's a bit of myself in this, however: his hairline is receding, and so is mine. And I can totally relate to how he's feeling, of course...this dude could be alone in a crowd.
Don't worry, I'm okay.
