Confidence Killer


This piece was created during a drawing class. I printed the words on a laser printer then cut and layered each page. I went back over the type with charcoal to push some of the letters and words back in space. I used conté crayon to draw the ghost figure and lamp's light.

Conceptually I wanted to explore an unhappy ending. The type represents either the thoughts within a person's mind or what is heard from others. The lamp does not emit enough light to reach the figure in order to show a way out of this headspace.
