Here are 5 self portraits I worked on a while ago. They increase in focus and definition from the first to the last, and I must say, I had a ton of fun working on these. I used all kinds of charcoal, ink, and conte, a large paintbrush, a box cutter, and even a dustpan broom to make them.
The image below is of the studio as I was working. Check out the powders and ink splashes on the floor.
