I love this image. The way they have filled in an image with embroidery opened up a whole level of inspiration for me to fill in, or outline an image using embroidery/beading techniques.
Funny - except for one of the pictures has an obviously female hand with red nail polish and rings- however the majority of the others seem male and all have no nail polish. These are different photos from different museums. DETECTIVE POWERS GO!
jim dine, self portrait
Francis Bacon. Self-Portrait. 1969. --I cannot help wondering what put him over the edge (if anything)--some artists are wack, some are just good at digging into what that "wack" must feel like...
