I Like The Way It Tastes.

This is another self portrait therapeutic piece. I've been struggling with a lot in my life lately, especially myself. I know that just like everyone in this world, there's a good side and a bad side to me. But sometimes, I feel I only have a "good" side to mask the real awful side. I've done a lot of horrible things in my life... maybe moreso than the average person and perhaps, that is why my life is as such. Only in the end of things will I truly know the answers to anything. And maybe not. So, here you have it. I titled this piece 'I Like The Way It Tastes' because I do. It feels good to be a bad person and do bad things, sometimes. Again, sorry for the shit quality photos, don't have a proper camera or scanner atm.
This is actually the second version of this idea, the first looked like this:
The photo is taken at a weird angle that makes the arm look shorter than it is and I fucked up the shadow. I decided I should try a more creative approach anyway. So, the second version is made of cut out pieces of bristol board (everything is actually separate, eye, shirt pocket, hair, skin, eyelash, etc) colored w/ India Inks pasted on 9 x 12 watercolor paper as opposed to the original that was just pencil and black & red ink.

The only good thing depression & reclusive behavior is good for is time to make mediocre products. Better than nothing, I suppose.
