Day 270

Once again, I am experimenting with using only an ink dropper to make my self-portrait. Obviously it allows for quite a variety of line quality, and the spontaneity makes for some loose amd whimsical imagery. And yes, there is a degree of control that the artist must give up when working with this medium, which adds to the overall effect.

With that said, I feel like doing someting different. Sure, most artists have a style that they work in day in and day out that links all of their artworks to all of their others. However, for something to become a personal style, it must be able to stand the test of time and be relatively successful again and again, at least in the scope of the artist's own work over a period of time. If it's not something that moves the person, then it really won't work long term.

In other words, I've grown tired of this material and am ready to do something different!
