"That Which Wears My Face"

Self portraits. Gah! I don't like talking about myself and I don't enjoy doing self portraits either. (I also don't like green eyes and ham!) This is my first in about 9 years, I think. The last one was for an anthology (to accompany a story I was having published). This one I think I like better. Anyway, here it is.

"That Which Wears My Face" ... colored pencil on 9"x12" cradled wood panel by Robert Elrod.

  1. I love how the beams or goo or whatever are solid black. Didn't take you for a woody but this is rad. Good work sir!

    1. The stuff coming out of my eyes and mouth are open for interpretation (evil, darkness, shit, etc.). I figured solid black was the way to go because I can look at most things and find something dark about them. That's part of what I was saying here. Partly saying also that I have a darkness within that I'm spreading. Har.

      A "woody"? You know I've done several pieces on wood panels, right? I've got a bunch of them here in my studio that are primed and ready to be painted. You'll be seeing more of them, bud.

    2. I saw it as a long, straight thing entering your mouth, then spraying out your eyes. Am I the only one who saw it that way? LOL!

    3. I was thinking of you when I did this, Josh. Then I realized that I needed to make it bigger to not embarrass anyone. I wasn't going to reveal our secret love but you forced me.
