It’s the first (that we know of) Selfie Art Day on WordPress! 🙂 Kirk of the fun Dumb Sketch Daily and I agreed it would be fun to have a day to draw self-portraits just as there is a day to draw birds (the 8th of the month, people; join in!).
For my inaugural piece, I used charcoal on a plain, old, cheap sketchpad. I stood in front of a mirror, holding the pad up in my left hand and drawing with my right. It took about a half hour total to draw this…I had to keep setting it down to give my arms a break.
I’m fairly pleased with how this turned out.
If you’re playing along, please post your URL in the comments. If you use Twitter, you can also tag me there (@teresarobeson) and use the hashtag “#SelfieArt .” Like Laura does for Bird Day art, I’ll compile them in a blog post in about a week. 🙂
If enough people enjoyed this, we can do it again next year!
