Alter Ego (Latin for “other I”) is a different version of oneself, the part of someone’s personality not usually seen by other people.
This work was drawn with graphite pencils on acid-free Hahnemühle Nostalgie drawing paper. In order to secure the applied layers and to keep smudging minimal, the finished work has been lightly sprayed with a fixative. However, drawings should never be directly touched. They are best kept under a matted, glass or plexiglass protected frame and away from high humidity, direct sunlight, or extreme heat.
