Facemask
Charcoal on Strathmore Paper, 18" x 24"
For this drawing, I wanted to show that underneath the exterior appearance of warriors is a person. The juxtaposition of the skull face mask with the kitten and eye contact were done to emphasize that point. This was my first use of Cretacolor toned Fine-Art Lead, and admittedly, I'm not sure I want to go back to standard graphite for major drawings after using them.
Facemask went on to be presented in three exhibitions before it was bought.
