For the past few years I’ve been interested in making art showing vaguely Victorianesque, or at least suit wearing people (especially men) where their face should be visible somehow, but is blocked or obscured by something. I don’t know why but I really like the idea. I was hanging out with a friend of mine last night and we were both drawing, and as usual I requested a topic to draw (because I suck at thinking of them myself). She said, “A man in a hat cleaning.” Immediately my mind went to Barenaked Ladies’ “When I Fall” and the same idea of a man without a face. Combining the two you get a window washer wearing a suit, looking at his reflection. All of which we can see, except his face, which is obscured by the squeegee and the water dripping off it.
