This is my latest drawing, Earworm. I started out intending to finish this one as a graphite drawing but once I got into it I felt pointillism would bring out its true character. With the lack of background all of the focus is on the character. I wanted the silhouette to read as human but then distort and stretch the surface to subvert the viewer’s expectations and give a sense of disintegration. There is a tension in the piece between disintegration and cohesion, which is undermined by the cavity and the unreliable anatomy.
