The original picture is almost 15 years old, when I was just 16, the digital file long since lost. This photo was snapped from my high school art book. I am also working a digital redraw of this piece, but I thought it would be fun to take a stab at a traditional version. What a difference 15 years make!
While Kasri has long since retired to the dregs of the Headspace, it's fun to go back and see just how much my art has changed ... and my taste in men! I was so sure I'd always love tall, skinny, goth bois with long hair rocking the Hot Topic look, baggy pants, glowsticks, and neon streaks.
Now I prefer tall, not-quite-so-skinny, goth bois with long hair and skinny pants. Glowsticks optional.
I am nothing if not consistent.
