The cartooned hands, bull neck, and high, angled cheekbones may reference or prefigure the TRAPT dude I made for some graffiti-inspired work around this time.
I didn't actually date this drawing, but there's a preliminary version on the facing page dated December 3rd, 2007, so my guess is this was done pretty close to then.
These look like abstractions made from pre-existing material, especially considering the preliminary drawing. This is a fun way to draw. In fact, I think that's how I'll draw tonight...
