'Mat Pringle' illustration

Carrying on the black and white portraits I thought I'd change it up (down?) a bit with a self portrait. I've not done one of these since school - it's all a bit narcissistic innit? Kurt Vonnegut, Woody Allen, Ernest Hemingway and me... It came out okay although I think the contrast in the ink wash is a bit tame compared to the other portraits I've done and the head shape is a bit on the piss.

In keeping with the family input my uncle just saw this and commented "what an ugly bastard" - there's definitely a zine developing here and I can take some joy in the fact he obviously recognised me. That's good right?
