Self portrait marathon
I can't believe it - I'm actually happy with this one! I think this looks exactly like me (in mirror image) although it may be an iddy, widdy, teensy, weeny bit flattering! Well, blotchy skin and saggy bits are not easy to draw y'know! I did include a deep wrinkle I have between the eyes from squinting in the sun, a scar on the chin and my strange ear - I have one ear without a curled edge. Mark calls it my Romulan ear as he's a Trekkie! I think I might use it to replace that old profile photo. It's interesting how many bloggers don't have photos of themselves in their profiles, no doubt for good reasons, but I prefer to see a face, otherwise I have trouble remembering whose is whose. I really admire those illustrated blogs that have a drawing of themselves but I didn't think I'd be able to do one I liked. Now I just need to find a cat to pose on my shoulder!
