Mona Lisa Smiles

On my studio wall there is a big drawing of a quirky man with bulging eyes and everyday he stares at me and reminds me that I can draw (sometimes I doubt myself...). He has a very powerful presence - black and white with no wishy-washy inbetween. His features have been distorted (on purpose) giving him one eye which is bigger and blacker than the other - sometimes it reminds me of the black hole in the universe. I did this drawing a long time ago but it has always been one of my favourites. Obviously its not everyone's cup of tea BUT this man has kept his eye on me for a very long time and lately I can almost sense a Mona Lisa smile on his black scratchy face...
