I wanted to illustrate the phrase "Read my lips" with this stylized self-portrait. Unfortunately I wasn't too flattered by my attempt to illustrate my personal "look". I imagine I had the exaggerated and smooth lines of the Rolling Stones' logo in mind.
Wikipedia tells me that was the work of designer John Pasche, who has done extensive work designing album and singles covers for the music industry, notably several Art of Noise covers that I remember from my early twenties, working at KUOI, the college radio station in Moscow, Idaho, back in the late Eighties. All the same, there is much to recommend this sketch, perhaps I'll re-do-it.
