This self-portrait is even looser and more spontaneous than yesterday's.
After finishing some work on the computer last night, I decided to close my eyes "for just a minute". At 4:30 am, Austin woke me up and asked why I was still awake - I suppose he failed to notice that my eyes were closed and my chin was tucked into my chest!
So, this is a 4:30 am drawing. I felt like I was able to shake the sleep from my eyes just enough to create a passing likeness, and the bird sharing the outline of my forehead was an interesting touch given my state of mind when the drawing was made.
With that said, I would like to complete the next self-portrait a little earlier in the day!
