Bird Nest Head


I'm not really sure where the inspiration for this one came from. I know that I wanted to get more women into my work. I have a terrible habit of drawing nothing but men... especially old men.

Also I think this is how I felt a long time ago when I started living in cities. I came from a very rural area with lots of the type of creatures you see here, but in moving to the city I found that there was much less peace and quiet and little creatures and people had lots of things on their minds. I've become quite a city person now. I like my convenience and my modernism and I think buildings can be beautiful and back alleys aren't as frightening. I never would have thought I'd have adapted like this.

This is great, I love the hair. I think it was Martin Luther who said you can't stop birds from flying overhead, but you can stop them nest in your hair. I think he was making a point about giving in to temptations.
