A black and white cartoon-like image depicts a figure standing with one hand in their pocket and the other holding a cigarette out in front of them. A single horizontal line in the background denotes that they are in a room. There are frames stacked up against the wall on the right side of the image. On the left side, the leg of a table is visible with a container of artists' brushes set on the corner of the table. The figure has a disproportionately large head with plenty of hair, a slim body and legs, and they are wearing a black turtleneck shirt (clothing).
