Have you ever heard of the word “wonk” before today? I hadn’t. The main definition is “stupid, boring or unattractive person” – that doesnt sound like much fun to paint!
The second definition is: a student who spends much time studying and has little or no social life. Well, this was me in 2005 and I was having a great time working and studying. I would never have called myself a wonk so this painting is about perceptions and whats happening on the inside and the outside of a person’s experience.
