Newspaper portraits

This short series of illustrations explores the mystery of each individual, the fact that often we all try to portray rather than express something. But the face holds hints that we can’t hide, and it communicates something else. Using as canvas repurposed ephemera, such as old newspaper sheets, is a reminder to myself that artistic expression does’t have to come from expensive art crafts or technology equipment, while at the same time it carries a feeling of nostalgia which often appears in my work.
