Three of my earliest attempts at drawing faces. I think the top left was Dylan Thomas and the middle one may have been me in a mirror. They were on separate pages of a sketchbook that fell apart eventually, and of which these three were about all that was worth salvaging, so I cut them out and selotaped them on a sheet of black cartridge paper, which badly affected them, because the selotape dirtied over time and the black line eventually showed through (you can still see the marks if you look closely, though on DT's forehead it actually adds tone and depth to the shading). Later I scanned them and did my best to recover them digitally. Why keep them? Nostalgia mostly, and an interest in looking back at both the good and the bad from my earliest efforts, as part of the continuous process of growing and learning.
