eaten by roaches?

The last of the paintings came down this morning from the attic. This one - my friend and colleague and classmate - Henry Dean and Henry Dean. He is telling himself a secret. I drew Henry about five million times over six years while we were in critique or in lecture or in faculty "parties" (too long meetings). I think I've included his face in about five or six finished works. Too bad this one's met such a bad end (the white parts are the digested areas).
