I didn’t want to stop drawing today, my motivation is relentless and I feel that I have unlimited energy to finish this self portrait.
This self portrait is my attempt to communicate the energy that I currently feel toward art making. I can’t wait to start in with the charcoal tomorrow morning as I plan to infuse this drawing with the energy I feel through energetic strokes.
