As far as I know, this was the first time I actually started taking pictures of my food. It wasn’t something I did very often then, but more as a historical kind of documenting moment. I don’t have a lot of photos showing what I did in my teen years, so anything that exists is almost a big peek into my past; even if it’s an insignificant thing as what I ate.
Here, we have fried chicken, mac and cheese and a cup of water. Usually paid about $2 for all of this, and bought it during my 15-minute break. The only time I wouldn’t buy this is if the deli was closed, which was after 5PM. In that case I’d revert back to candy or something else.
I ran into this dude at the Morristown Mall, while my Mom was taking me clothes shopping for my first semester at Walters State. Typically these things have blank faces or they’re extruded without paint, but this literally looked it was scribbled on with markers. My sister just made up her face when I showed it to her.
Just at the beginning of summer I did this for my sister; she wanted artwork of a character in a story she was writing, known as Scarlet Fury. So I drummed this up one afternoon.
I wasn’t too happy with how the feet came out, but I love the details I put into the background. She liked that about the piece as well, apparently.
Maybe one of these days I’ll actually get this colored. I don’t usually do full scenes.
