“A short sketch of self-examination in which I use the motif of a game I once played with the kids of a couple I know. The game is to draw each other’s portraits without looking at the paper. The results were amusing.
Here I pose for the camera in my favourite way while retaining a bit of portrait styling. Without taking my eyes off myself I sketch the reflection. I don’t look at the paper and the drawing hand tries to do its best. The result is this clumsy ‘something’. O.B.”
