Older Work Part 9: She Considers Voyeurism

binoculargirlThis is actually photoshopped. Ever so slightly. I drew this girl and I drew a pair of binoculars, they were not positioned as they are here. I saw them on the page next to each other and didn’t understand why I hadn’t drawn her looking at the binoculars. So I moved them with the power of the computer. I am a cheating hack.

There is no great story behind this image, it’s just something I drew in Savannah one day and thought there was something mysterious and interesting about it, enough to keep it around. I imagine that she is holding herself back, resisting the urge to pick up the binoculars, but she’s just about to crack and lift them to her face, and in the distance is something she knows she shouldn’t look at, something private and taboo, but she just can’t help herself.

Or birds. She could be planning to look at birds.
