Self-portrait as object

The brief was to combine a self-portrait with an object that represented some aspect of your personality. For the object, I chose one of those games where you slide a number of square pieces around in a plastic frame, to represent my obsession with 'getting things in order', everything in it's place, etc. I started with a painting of my face looking 'thoughtful', photocopied it in colour, cut it into squares and pasted it onto one of the games I just described. I then muddled all the pieces up, and painted it again, from life.
