One of my wonderful friends (and the creator of the GingerSass face/ logo you all have come to love) challenged me to draw one self portrait of myself daily for the rest of my #23til23 journey. This idea really excited me, as art has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. During my senior year of high school, I actually was (briefly) torn about going to school for an English degree or going to art school, and I decided to pursue the English degree because I reasoned that I didn’t want to get a degree in art and end up hating something that I loved. (After all, everyone hates their jobs, right? Oh, teenage logic.)
It’s been a few years since I’ve actually sat down and drawn anything more than a doodle, and I definitely don’t have a sketchbook or the proper drawing utensils, so I hope you’ll forgive my attempt at drawing myself at 11:45 at night with a pencil on a piece of computer paper. I was also looking at myself in a mirror at an odd angle so, well, yea…
It felt really good to draw again. Thanks for the challenge, Michelle!
What other challenges do you people have for me??!
