Since kindergarten I hardly dare touch a pencil. Finally (in 2002) I met my friend Paul. Creative wizard and determined to lure me into drawing and being creative. Everyone is creative he said. I disagreed. After a couple of hours of drawing with pencil he put me to the test: Draw a self portrait with charcoal and use negative spaces and positive forms. I was upset to say the least.
This was the result. I look at myself secretly determined to proof that I cannot and will not be able to draw. Ever. I use a mirror up close and look deeper and deeper. I catch sight of myself and the dark side of me.
