A stenciled self portrait JUST HAPPENED to show up on the dumpster behind my apartment building a few minutes ago.

My mother told me to "Smile big!" and I gave it everything I had.

Day My mother told me to “Smile big! It was cool to see some of the subtle changes, I don’t smile big like that nearly as often as I should.

I almost always wear my hair in plaits because this is what happens when I don’t. I really liked that picture of myself though because, even though a lot of my face was obscured, you can still tell that I was smiling just from my eye. Was trying really hard to catch that in this sketch.

I don’t know if I’ve ever looked at my face this closely for this long. I don’t know how much it actually looks like me but… each part of it looks like my parts, just maybe nearer or closer to each other than they really are. I found out that I smirk at myself when I look for too long!

For #throwbackthursday I dug out a self-portrait that I did 2 years ago to compare it to one that I did for the selfie sketch workshop from a few months ago. I’m nowhere near where I want to be as an artist but sometimes it’s cool to see how far the daily sketching has taken me.

Culling a bookshelf and found this hidden in an old Readers’ Digest World Atlas. I drew this when I was 11 and would have sworn that it was lost to the winds. I drew this and didn’t draw again for literally decades.

Quick kiddie sketches

Finally back to work and putting in some practice time with a brush pen.

Day 6/30 Lupita Nyong'o

I’m already noticing that I have a tendency to draw faces wider than they actually are.
