Day 196

This self-portrait looks nothing like my original idea.  On the other hand, I'm not sure the beginning thoughts were terribly organized in the first place!  All I knew was that I wanted my face to be a balloon...and that was it.

While making this drawing, I was struck by the fact that it looks a lot like a page from a coloring book.  The irony is that I hate coloring books!  In fact, I rarely let my kids have them when they were younger; rather, I encouraged them to make their own drawings and then add color.  Staying inside the lines was always optional...
