Self Portrait
Vallen 1978
Pen and ink on paper
9 1/2" x 11"

I drew myself standing on Hollywood Boulevard sporting one of my tamer looks for that time. During the heyday of punk rock my appearance and that of my friends changed almost daily, from mismatched thriftstore clothes and shaved head to black leather motorcycle jacket and modified mohawk haircut.

At the time, few people wore such bizarre punk outfits on the streets of Los Angeles, and I can remember turning heads wherever I went. Most people just thought I was from Mars.
