Finding Objects to Draw for DCs Portrait

DC worked as a Car Mechanic before he was in Prison, his grandfather was a Car Mechanic and he would like to continue working as a mechanic when he is released from Hospital. I borrowed these car parts and tools from a Bubble Car collector and drew them in DCs portrait.

DC on Copper PlateI met Forensic Psychiatry Patient DC at River House (Bethlem Royal Hospital) at 10.00am on tuesday the 25th of August. He had just woken up and was very tired but was happy to talk to me. We talked in the “Interview Room” for an hour and a half. DC told me about his family, his teenage life and his experiences in Prison and Psychiatric Hospital. After our conversation I made the following sketches.
