A couple months ago I did my first self portrait since the dog days of art school. It set something off in me. I am now on a mission to further have fun or be serious in creatively showing myself, my image, and my voice.
I have always loved comics. I grew up in a house with boys and my late uncle had an amazing comic book collection. My favorite comics go beyond a display of superpowers but show the complex humanity behind the characters. We are all complex characters, even when we try to be superheroes, superwomen, strong black women, towers of strength, etc. Plus, this portrait was a great excuse to show myself strutting in a fake purple fur coat 🙂
