I had a lot of fun with today's self-portrait drawing. My good buddy Robert Wimer hung around and created a fabulous time-lapse video of the drawing process, which I'm pleased to share here.
It was a bit of a surreal experience to be filmed while making art. I've seen many different videos of an artist sketching or drawing, so it's very exciting to now have my own!
I was also very happy to carve out a longer block of time for art-making today. With the demands of everyday life, sometimes it's very difficult to squeeze in enough time to make a nice quality artwork. However, one of my goals for this project is certainly being met: I AM making an artwork each and every day, regardless of how much (or little) time is actually invested. I will say, however, that it was a blast spending a little over an hour making this drawing!
