Gads, how to do a fun selfie?
I just learned how I can turn my camera around on my iPhone,
so I made several faces into the camera and drew from those.
Contour drawings, the first and third blind contours.
*gads they are the hardest to post
plugs me into my sense of beauty and self-worth
when do we really ever get over this crapola?*
I call them Monster, Kissy-kissy, and Jewish Wise Woman.
The middle one looks most like me.
Tomorrow I will post a slideshow and
my reflections on this challenge.

That annoying loud-mouth editor/critic in your head? GONE! How great would that be?
All beautiful as you are Kate!
These are great! I especially like the blind contour drawings as there is an energy to those that I really like. Self-portraits are hard to do because, of course, our faces are so familiar to us and we can therefore see where we have matched the reality and where we have not. I find also that I have my Inner Critic voice snarking at me for narcissism because I drew myself. However, self-portraits are great practice precisely because of that same familiarity. It allows us to keep returning to drawing the same face over and over and, therefore, making progress with our skills. I am, therefore, glad you drew them and shared them.
I never like mine, so this time decided to do those I doubted I would like ahead of time — just go for a contour! I am happy with the energy and don’t care if they look like me so much!
