Found Objects


My mom found this illustration of mine in a drawer of my grandma's house. We've been working our way through many years of accumulated things, and this was a really funny and pleasant surprise. I remember those styrofoam figure 8s featuring in many of my early arts and crafts projects. I think they came from the shoe factory that my grandmother worked at, but I'm not sure.

In this portrait, it seems that my five-year-old self glued the "8" on first and then drew around it. Not too sure about who the subject is, but it may be a portrait of either my grandma or my cousin, Ernie, as the title at the top is somewhat vague.
