I made these drawings for my Advanced Drawing class earlier in the semester when asked to make 3 drawings representing our interest/style. As I'm used to making art about relationships the subject matter deals with a guy who I was starting to get attached to, and then, as things happen things ended.

These drawings I consider portraits of that time. One is a portrait of him as an inside joke of a serial killer clown, the other is of me as a shell of myself with a head filled with shrimp representing semen, and the last one is a portrait of half of his unborn baby as a symbolic shrimp/sperm falling out of a symbolic purple glove representing a condom. Some people might think this is a weird, and you know what, I think it's weird too.
