What! A self portrait?
A while ago my friend Mel and I decided to throw up some news print, set up some mirrors and draw ourselves in charcoal. I don't remember what inspired the act, but I need to admit that I don't think I've drawn a realistic human figure since 11th grade in High School, let alone a self portrait. It was intimidating!
However, I was really pleased with what I did, and considering all opposing factors (never liked drawing people, never very good at drawing people, not used to drawing so large, and this was larger than life sized) it was really fun! I think I'll try to get into the habit of drawing for life a bit more. I miss it.
The head is large, ain't got no hand...but whhhaaatevvva!
