I think I drew it a bit out of frustration because that wasn't how I saw myself.

I really liked her expression in the picture and meant to draw it for many years, yet I always feared I would not quite catch it. Then some day I just did it and I'm really happy with the result. It's charcoal and white pencil on brown cardboard. The title comes from a song by Missy Higgins called "they weren't there".

They boys of summer- anyone know that one? It's based on a photo of beautiful Rachael Hurd Wood. Her expression just caught me, I really wanted to portray it. To me it's somewhere in between a little broken and still sort of focused, like she set her mind to doing something although it might be painful.

I used powdered charcoal that I applied with a Q-tip.

He is currently not active anymore and has put all of his artwork into storage so I can't link to the actual photo anymore- I did this drawing many years ago...
