PostHeaderIcon #173

Took 9 today to get to the decent one in the middle. Wasn't intentional.... just started sketching and experimenting and wasn't happy with any till the last one. Anyway, one more closer to 365 :)

PostHeaderIcon #172

Getting back to the present now, I had quickly sketched the skull last week at McGuffey and included it in the crop for this post....because on Wednesday night we went to a presentation at the Festival of the Book. The Talk included speakers Noah Scalin on his Skull a day project and book Skulls and Nick Valentino with his new Steampunk novel entitled Thomas Riley

It was a great presentation and I was lucky enough to get to meet both of them. We went out for a little St. Patty's day Guinness with Nick and had fun..... and hope to meet up with Noah sometime as he lives in Richmond which isn't too far away.  

Look!  Actual blog with my fancy hyperlinks and more than three words below the self portrait. See ya soon.

Outta the shower I did a couple of quick scrawly ones again in the mirror. I think a vast majority of these s.p.'s have taken place in the bathroom which strikes me as a bit odd, but I guess it stands to reason with a big mirror and plenty of light.

Plus it has those great acoustics that allow me to work on my high falsetto for my operatic performances....

A couple from the mirror in ballpoint pen..... back in January I believe. The one on the right is getting there.... think the other was a bit of a warm up.

After a long absence I am back to finish what I set out to do... 365 self portraits though no longer on a daily basis. This is kinda a goofy looking one I did a while back as you can tell by the date. I have been sporadically drawing self portraits, but amidst all the goings on hadn't posted.... so I am playing catch up

Boy... kind of a whoolly bugger ain't he

Ode to the bic ballpoint:
Oh how I love thee
My cheap familiar friend
Every time I pick you up
A surprise comes out your end.
After rereading this... I probably could have chosen better words. Good thing there is a title, otherwise I'm sure some of you would draw strange conclusions from those 4 lines.
