Very Quick Self Portrait

Between work and driving to Canada I managed to fit in a very quick and ugly self portrait.

Today is one of those days where even my minimum 30 minutes of drawing a day rule was hard to accomplish. I was super busy all day with work and preparing for our trip to Vancouver that all I had time for was looking in the mirror grabbing some willow and going to town.

Although I did have a goal, I wanted to see how the willow charcoal I just purchased worked on newsprint and I wanted to attempt a smiling pose.

The willow worked perfectly on newsprint and I found that drawing a smiling pose wasn’t near as hard as holding a smile for 30 minutes. Maybe I should smile more often and build up those muscles 🙂
