Just Kind of Hanging Back and Waiting

This ATC came about in its own way. The lenses of the glasses were actually two dots of ink on gray paper. I drew the face around them, but…there was not enough gray paper.

Where is the rest of this guy? Does it matter? He looks pretty satisfied.

    I like the intrigue of this piece. The face with glasses peeking through all the text paper makes me think of the figure as a spy who is keeping watch through the facade of a newspaper.

    Yes, I was going to add more, but when I saw it in this state, I stopped, because I loved the idea that maybe he was in a lobby peering over a paper at the hotel guests, the start of the kind of movie I love…

    Thank you. You know, this is the best part of art, just exploring and letting things go, wherever the ideas come from, just riding along. I like that feeling a lot.
