For Day 2 of the art challenge that Claire and Sylvia tagged me to do, I have a #SelfieArt piece that I created using Neocolors. Remember them?
It is NOT easy to do a self portrait standing in front of a mirror holding a sketchbook in one hand and attempting to free-hand your face with the other with what are essentially glorified crayons. I don’t know why I do these things to myself.
Since there are not many hues to choose from, I had to make do with orange, yellow, and brown for my face. My mom had once said I was a banana, but I look more like a mango here.
I think this not-selfie (below) worked out slightly better since I kept it to black and white (using just the black crayon) and didn’t have to hold the sketchbook up vertically with one hand…I held it up horizontally with one hand over my laptop keyboard instead. I think I’m a closet masochist.
Anyway, here is the list of everyone who participated in #SelfieArt in February (in no particular order).
Please go check out their wonderful work if you haven’t already!
