If you know me, you know I have confidence issues. Specifically I don't like looking at myself, so I'm sure it comes as no surprise that the concept of a self portrait was the last thing I ever wanted to do. That is until I saw Drew Struzan do it. Then I thought, hmmm maybe I can try to both emulate his style and do a self portrait too. You know, two birds with one stone sort of thing. After thinking about it for over a month, I finally sat down and did it. It's no where near Struzan's caliber, but I'm THRILLED with how this came out. I feel like I can at least imitate his look. (Which will be useful with some future ideas I have.) Until then here's the only occasion where I actually enjoyed drawing myself.
