Sometimes when I'm searching for inspiration for a next piece, I try to capture certain angles or movements...some that I can't find on Pinterest or magazines...so what I do is try to take shots of my own body in the angle or movement so that I can get a better idea of what's in my head.
"Creepy," as my husband called it. At first my feelings were bruised when I misunderstood what he meant. "No, no, no...I mean it looks just like you! It's kinda creepy because that's exactly you," he had to explain to me. Oh. (Feelings were immediately unhurt).
Besides this drawing loosely based on myself, I haven't made a drawing of myself since...high school, I guess? And of course it looked like someone else. Well, actually, I did a quick line drawing of myself one summer during college in this style, but that didn't look like me either.
I think this one is going to end up more semi-realistic, as opposed to my line illustration style.
Meanwhile, on the self-portrait train, I decided it may be time for a new "About" page photo. It's been long enough, hasn't it?
Oh, and that shirt is from Everlane. It's seriously the best. And if you want to try to cut your hair all by yourself (like I fearfully taught myself to do a couple of summers ago...and I don't think I've had it cut professionally in almost two years now), start out with this video! That's the one I always follow. And if you're interested in how to cut shorter layers framing your face (like long side bangs), I can totally show you in an illustration or something.
Are you guys interested in that?
