this is the first picture i drew that i was willing to put up. it is also likely the first that hasn't been lost or destroyed. it, like virtually all of my early work, was not done from either a live subject (oh, were it not so) or from my imagination (that's a plus, at least). as in the case with "the end of beauty", please note that there is a symbol of cronos hidden in the picture. it was begun and completed by a 14 year old budding hellhed in 1988. the crease that appears across the picture is actually, and unfortunately, from the paper's being folded there semi-continuously for the past 13 years. the original drawing is larger than most of the others in my collection, and as such was abused during my repeated moves from place to place.
