I made this self portrait in my first college drawing class. I'd never taken a drawing course previously. I had spontaneously decided to quit my job cleaning toilets in Miles City and move to Bozeman, MT to enroll in design school. I was caught off guard by the fine arts education I was receiving, and began doubting my decision. This project was my first real attempt to succeed at art school. Between my facial expression and my shirt, it's a comment my feeling out of place at that time. Ironically, this was the project that got me really excited about craftsmanship and design.
