Rage against the Machine (And by machine I mean wife)


There's definitely a story to this one. Back during Thanksgiving weekend last year, the wife and I finally went on our honeymoon. Well, one morning when we were in Monteverde (Costa Rica), we got into an argument and it was one of those that immediately got my blood boiling because of the sheer impracticality of it. I immediately starting to sketch what you see here as the face with a 3H pencil and left it.

About 10 weeks later I come across it in my moleskine and realized it wasn't finished. To really feel my rage at that moment I had to add color and definition. A few brush strokes and some india ink later and this was the result. So this will forever remind me of that argument, which I cannot for the life of me remember what it was.

Women.
