Self portrait in purplePosted: September 22, 2014
Sat in the car sketching myself whilst Caro drives us over to a friend’s house for a party.
After I’d coloured in my skin so dazzlingly orange, Caro suggested that I do my beard in an equally bright hue.
Choosing purple was a bit of a mistake; I nearly look like an escaped umpa-lumpa (from Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory!)
Caro urged me to colour my eyes green, which seemed even more umps-lumpa-ish.
Sometimes it’s cool to follow the suggestions of others and then, when they think you’re going to follow every whim, switch track and go back to doing your own thing.
