I created this over a few days, or maybe it was weeks at work when I was in a job that was not the right fit. The medium simply is pen on scrap printer paper. I scribbled out the face fairly quickly and then slowly added more details.
I was feeling particularly defeated one afternoon and began writing self-deprecating script along the outline of the image. I had a moment where I shook my self out of it and began writing about what I wanted instead and it resulted in greater peace of mind and this drawing as the end result.
US artist living outside of Tokyo for work. Acrylic and watercolor are preferred mediums beyond doodling on any scrap of paper within reach.
