This is one of those art pieces that I created with no predetermined plan. It kind of just happened. I remember a kind of disembodied “watching myself draw” feeling as I created the piece, which is kind of reflected in the expression.
As is the case in a lot of my surreal concepts, I combined some kind of biological concept with a technological one. Not super novel, I know—but I’m not out to create novelty for its own sake.
I started this drawing out with some white acrylic paint to block out where light hit the face. Once this dried, I added the black lines, and then I finished it off with charcoal and red chalk for texture and shading.
The original drawing is part of a private collection in Wenatchee, WA.
Here’s what Processor looks like in a (admittedly cheap) frame, for scale.
