1001 Black Men–#184

This week I’ve been thinking about how little someone’s expression can tell us about what a person is thinking. This drawing, for example, depicts a very tired looking man I noticed in the line ahead of me at Best Buy in Emeryville. Why I first saw him, I immediately wondered what or who had exhausted him so. When I started working on this drawing, though, I was remembered how rarely people are able to interpret my thoughts based on my facial expressions. This drawing is an acknowledgement of and a meditation on what is often a great divide between one’s self-presentation and his or her feelings and thoughts.
