5 self portraits

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.

  1. These are delightful. I’m glad you included the photo showing all five and the scale of the drawings! I had thought them to be relatively small. They are quite powerful in their size and even more so when gathered together.
