Tomorrow is my birthday so I figured it's a good time to be indulgent with a couple of recent self-portraits. This first one was during a bit of artist's block last week.
This one grew out of a little sketch of some items on my desk, and morphed as I followed down the page. I was using a new pen, a Micron .005 mm, which has a very thin but very solid line. It forces me to be very thoughtful about each stroke as I'm drawing, which is a good exercise for impulsively sketchy me.
