Drawing: Graphite, Pencil, Paper on Paper.
I became interested in images of 'men with quiffs' as examples of dandyism in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. For hundreds of years before that the quiff—in all its many forms—has been an obvious example of male 'plumage'. I like the juxtapositions of vanity and masculinity, display and aggression that accompany the style. The portrait is drawn with a 6B pencil on Stonehenge paper with jagged edges on the top and bottom of the page.
