Drawings > Works on Paper

This is a series of charcoal drawings I created as an academic exercise in portraiture. A majority of the images come from actual decapitations and beheadings found on the internet via photography and film clips. The ethnicity of each portrait spans the globe from Vietnam to Mexico to Turkey to Germany.
