The human anatomy continues to fascinate, seduce and challenge me. I didn’t notice it at first but realised, as I was drawing him, the letters LIFE tattooed on his fingers. It seemed to add a new layer to the meaning of the work. While his masculinity was apparent, his long hair tied in a ponytail created a gentle feminine contrast.
I have used cool coloured ink and mediums to create this piece. While still wet, I work back into the surface with a blunt pencil.
