Illustration Friday: Lonely

Hello, all.
It's been a loooong time, I know.  I have been working a lot, posting a lot of the imagery on my Facebook Business page.  There were some issues with Illustration Friday, and I didn't get any topics for a while.  I noticed this one, and just happened to finish a piece TODAY that I felt was a good fit.
At first glance, you may wonder why this would work for the word "lonely".  This is actually a self-portrait.  I am in an argument with myself. 
This was inspired by Beverly McIver, a well know contemporary artist here in North Carolina.  She teaches at North Carolina Central University in Durham.  Recently, HBO showed a documentary on her called "Raising Renee".  Good stuff.  Her work is personal, so I decided that I would try it.
I hope you enjoy...
Have a great week!!!
