My intention is to do a self portrait - hopefully this weekend if i can get organized - but before I do I wanted to post this. There's a lot happening in this photos but i've yet to take a picture of the portrait on it's own. That was Rizzo and my apt in van, that was the art wall, which always had masonite and canvas and MDF lined along it and art supplies spewing from dense right near to wall to a shoreline of walkable floor a few feet away.

I did this portrait in maybe 10 or 15 minutes. It felt reallllly good. I had a good but weird and unexpected day. Came home, took the mirror off Rizzos wall and sat and did it. It's the big ugly childlike face. I don't know how much it 'looks' like me technically, but it works. I'd say it's one of my fav self portraits. The morning i had to fly back home Rizzo and I had to score it, then snap it in half to fit it in my suitcase, which was symbolic i think of having to come home.

Anyways, finally I have something to post! More soon hopefully.

Re: October Self Portraits

Interesting topic, especially since I can't seem to figure out what I look like. I occasionally do self portraits for practise, and each of em look like some other person. I can draw other people just fine, but when it comes to my face I am confused. Pepperoni said this one looked pretty close.


October Self Portraits

Sure, October's got Thanksgiving, Hallowe'en, Oktoberfest and I think New Years is somewhere around the 17th, but forget about all of that nonsense...
We need a BBQ rallying cry, something everyone can get behind...
So here's me, Corey, AND in fall colours no less!
...uh, but that's not necessary, just one of the many products of my boundless wisdome.
