Okay, so some blog viewers have recognized me on the street from my drawings - that's a good thing for me, since that means I get a likeness. But I'm not quite ready to post my face on the blog. I think holding back is a good thing. Anyhow, this was a portrait I did with a photo (in the vein of the Mass series, which is a take-off on the Supermass series of fabu artist James Roper) for Facebook. The swirls remind me of Murakami's kinkier work, but I've always loved my swirly fabric since I was a kid so I can say it's original. And I redrew my face by tracing, which doesn't seem to yield a good product for me. Guess I'm too used to working my own way and tracing? Not so much.
