James Ensor Inspired Drawing

The James Ensor exhibition at the MoMA is worth going to. A major figure in the Belgian avant-garde in the late nineteenth century, and was an important part of the oncoming twentieth century Expressionism.

Somewhat inspired I drew this whilst sitting at a bench in the middle of the throng of people.
Many people snooping over my shoulder. Which is fine, as long as they don't ask me "who's that supposed to be?"

Also, it's worth going to the MoMA just to see a certain poet, Alina Gregorian, who works there behind a counter.
