Artline pen 0.4 mm, red and blue colour pencils, grey, brown and ochre Pitt brush markers, day 3 migraine.


  1. Sorry you suffer from migraines, but I like this illustration. Especially the way you handled the coloring/shading of the face.
    Feel better.

  2. Marvellous portrait, Ea! I too have migraines sometimes, but a very mild kind. I hope you feel better soon...

  3. My dad was a doctor and I remember that he used to get artwork from some of the pharmaceutical companies that corresponded to the medicine they were selling. Yours would be perfect to go along with a migraine remedy. You can see the discomfort in your eyes as well as the sense that you are in control. It's a very moving sketch. I hope you're feeling better.

  4. Thank you all for your well wishing - I am feeling much better now and recovering a bit of energy.
    The drawing was done 6-7 hours after the migraine peaked and gave me a much appreciated respite by focusing my attention away from the pain - I love how drawing does that when it's really successful.
