Day 3

I think it's interesting how occasionally we start with one thing and it becomes something else. Today's drawing started simply as a few marks with a blue ballpoint pen on standard printer paper. One thing led to another and I quickly realized that I was doing this day's self-portrait!

It's probably important to note that I am a strong believer that a self-portrait does not have to be an exact likeness of the artist. I didn't use a mirror or photo reference to do this drawing, but it is most definitely me. A self portrait can be, as this entire project will demonstrate, any number of things...
