After my rather uninspired attempt at a self-portrait for November’s #SelfieArt Day, I’m relieved to say that there will not be a #SelfieArt Day on Dec. 25th (because, you know…). We’ll resume in January if there is enough interest.
In fact, I might just take a blogging break for the entirety of December. It’ll be a crazy month due to the holidays, my sister visiting, and just the general seasonal blahs (this drawing is sort of a selfie; I feel as blah as she looks).
I promised my sweet friend (and human being extraordinaire) Charlie O’Shields (over at the awesome Doodlewash blog) that I’d answer some questions for the Liebster Award today, but that was before I remembered I had to post the #SelfieArt Day links. So, tomorrow, I’ll answer Charlie’s questions. I promise! 🙂
A big thanks to all the lovely folks who were game enough to tackle creating their own self-portraits this month! They’re presented alphabetical order; please check out their terrific self-portraits, interpreted in their own style! If I’ve forgotten someone, let me know. 🙂

I was chatting with Kirk of Dumb Sketch Daily — his sketches are not dumb, by the way 🙂 — and we thought it might be fun to do a once-a-month self-portrait art challenge, much like the 8th of the month bird art challenge.
If there isn’t already one online, I propose we set the 25th of each month (no reason other than that it will give us all some time to prepare for the inaugural September date) to post a self-portrait piece that we’ve drawn or painted. Kirk has promised to participate, and I hope some of you will join in the fun!
Here’s an old one of mine…circa 1999-ish.
