Likely the most realistic of abstract self-portraits drawn over the years, this featured drawing was created for a poem that’s just as truthful in expression – this month’s featured poem, Newborn Beach.

The first of many poems included in Becoming a Poem : 22 for you, this is a collection where I get into how and why each poem was written while explaining the reason and process for selecting certain drawings and photos.

Writing about the truth and reality of what inspired and prompted me to write this specific collection was an exhilarating and emotionally draining process, and turning to drawing, as an alternative creative outlet, was often a much needed reprieve and a pleasant distraction.
