I found this Swedish guy in a vintage book with lots of head shots of serious looking men. I think he is darling cute, with his big ears and his hair combed back with some grease. He is trying to look like a grown up even though he feels like a child on the inside still.
I decided to do a series of collages with this guy, and call him my pretend boyfriend, or my imaginary boyfriend. I’m not sure I need one, but if I did he might look like this guy… The text reads; Today my pretend boyfriend told me I don’t need to pretend any more. I bet he would say nice things all day long, and stroke my hair until I fell asleep at night.
