When I saw this self portrait by Colleen Tighe I just wanted to shout ‘YESS!!’. I love how honest this piece is – the double chin and open mouth that will inevitably drool everywhere. Lets be realistic – none of us look like those slender necked, perfectly made up movie stars while we sleep and I for one will forever embrace anything with a double chin.
“For my experimental narrative class we had to write about an autobiographical event and illustrate a self portrait from the other person’s P.O.V. in the story. I decided to write about the long term relationship I have with my bed and the emotional struggles we have together.”
