The creative adult is the child who survived.
Commission by Emily in Australia, she requested a nude portrait. A portrait that represents resilience and strong-will in a woman. A task I was happy to undertake and very proud of the final product. I got my girlfriend to photograph Freddie nude in my studio as I orchestrated how I would like her to pose. I didn't have a cigarette so I rolled a bit of paper up for her to hold so I could improvise a cigarette and smoke in the drawing. I went with a negative effect for the smoke which gives a more 'sketchy' look to it.
