Self Portrait


Originally uploaded by AKMA.

Pippa gave me this self-portrait yesterday evening, executed to correspond to one that Nate made long ago. Nate’s portrait included a frame with plastic toys glued on around the image; Pippa noticed the other day that they made a vaguely facial pattern themselves, picking up and reinforcing the depiction of Nate’s face. Evidently the idea of “eyes” on the frame stuck with her, as this features googly-eyes all around the frame, and Pippa’s eyes are likewise googly.

  1. The wired generation will forevermore have “Googly” eyes. They see the world as links, referenced by reputation.

    Only natural that Pippa should pick up on elements ranked by her older brother.
