self portrait with mustache
frida kahlo wishes she had this mustache.
drawn from a photo of me, sporting a fake mustache to pay tribute to the Fastwurms retrospective. which incidentally, is where I got my “What Would Neil Young Do?” poster.
the mustaches were given out through an art group that we traveled with, up to the opening party at York U. they were made of real hair, and this one matched my natural hair colour and texture perfectly. I’ve always admired a really good mustache, and secretly wanted to know what it would be like to grow one. it was a hilarious experiment to ride the subway with a thick, full, natural looking mustache- juxtaposed with my otherwise feminine features & dress. (secretly, I think I looked pretty awesome- and would love to wear one again.)
