self-portrait with blue hair

self-portrait with blue hairMore self portraits…it’s becoming my morning routine with coffee. The first thing I do each day.




self-portraitMy sister makes a lot of self-portraits and they are so wonderful. I draw myself in my comics, but that isn’t really the same as looking at my reflection and really drawing my own face. I’m often daunted at the idea of getting my own likeness, it’s easier to draw someone else. But this morning I saw my reflection and felt a strong desire to draw myself. To see my face as I see it through my hands. (If that makes sense?) Going through this intense emotional time I’m trying to really pay attention to myself, and maybe this is a good way to do that.
