Sometimes going back to an illustration you worked on years ago is like coming home. You remember vividly where you were in your life, what music you were listening to, why you felt compelled to do this one image. I've decided to go revisit some of my favorites and bring them up to speed, and finish the ones I haven't yet. I've decided perhaps the key to not being too critical is having more than one to work on at a time, to give myself some breathing space.
So "Redwing," my self portrait, got the night off.
And tonight I went back, found a favorite, and fixed it up a bit. I thought I'd share . . . I did this my first year here in NYC. I believe once you know that, the image pretty much speaks for itself (and me).
