Wood Chips 8
Two Wally Wood self-portraits from two different stages of his life. In "The Jumper," from his Paratrooper days in the 1940s, the youthful Wood floats outside the picture plane. Decades later, he sketched the bar scene, evidently a mirror reflection, since he is holding the drink in his left hand. Note hint of Death figure waiting outside the door.
