newsprint drawings: self portraits

I spent some time recently thinking about mile stones in my childhood. I am working on the first Gallery 8 show at school (just slightly intimidating), and I asked fellow students to make work inspired by childhood memories of bath time. Not quite as literal as that, but you know... I was doing lots of thinking about it as well. Certain changes terrified, annoyed and embarrassed me. I think that's where these came from. And honestly, I don't usually use such blatant imagery, and frankly they are kind of embarrassing. But I like them as a series.
