This print was made to illustrate a story about Susan's parents, both deceased, her father being the subject. He was a very neatly presented man and often wore a tie, and always during his working life.
I tried to sketch the act of putting on a tie with myself as model but it kept on coming out looking like me! I then asked my brother-in-law to pose and not surprisingly, it was much more like Ed.
