Photo-A-Day 24 out of 47 — “Faceless Self-Portrait” (Don)

image

The prompt said faceless, but I assumed it meant without my face. Instead, I focused on one of the things that make me me.

This is a bunch of my artwork, in pencil, pen, and marker. In the middle is my favorite drawing tool: mechanical pencils.

The way I draw, with mechanical pencils in short, tentative strokes, may not be strictly unique, but it is unusual. And I’m happy it is.

A lot of artists think their way is the only way — I once had an artist tell me I “would never be an artist” until I started to draw with long fluid lines, like him.

I like to think I’ve proven him wrong.
