50 Self Portraits Continued (finally)
You may be aware that I am working on a series of 50 self portraits. The original idea was to try to do one nearly every day for 50 days but that isn’t happening. But here is the latest installment. You’ll see by the dates that I missed a ridiculous amount of days in November. Oops.

The kooky looking ones are blind contour drawings, where you draw without looking at the paper. Then there’s the one where I look like a zombie… I kept trying to fix it so I wouldn’t look like a zombie but it just kept getting worse. The second to last one I think is my best so far. I did that one at my mom’s house the night before Thanksgiving. I really took my time on that one because I had nothing else to do except read “The Very Quiet Cricket” and other old books that are still in my bedroom at my mom’s house.

Here are the first and second entries from this project.
