The version of myself portrayed in this mixed-media drawing is my high-school self. When creating this, I was considering ideas of gender, femininity, and concepts of beauty. The driving force behind this drawing was the notion of sitting comfortably with multiple versions of oneself. For example, depicted here is one version of myself, and the person who drew this is another version of myself. Both identities have served a purpose in forging who I am today.
