15 Weekly Self- Portraits

Self- Portraits
Mixed Media
August- December 2013

Besides doing illustrations this past semester, I did a weekly self-portrait for the past 15 weeks for my drawing class in my sketchbook.  I used a variety of media, like charcoal, ink, crayon, and chalk pastels.  For some I toned my paper with watercolor or ink, or drew on toned paper.  Some are a lot better than others, but I have enjoyed doing these every week.  I am going to try to keep this going every week to continue to get better.

Fly Away

December 2013

This illustration is loosely based off of the greek myth of "The Fall of Icarus".  I changed it to be a self-portrait of me, flying away in the city.
