Say, that’s not my face! My Daily Portrait Project ended – please read about it in my essay for Women’s Voices for Change:
womensvoicesforchange.org/it-ended-as-it-began-or-did-it.htm

I’m on to a more varied daily art practice. March-April 2010, I intend to draw a different contemporary artist every day.

Today’s artist is Canadian Jerry Waese. He makes fantastic stop-action drawings of busy Toronto streets, in which he and his sketch pad must barely escape being run over on a daily basis. He’s also an excellent portraitist, with a great sense of balance in off-kilter compositions and a wonderful sense of color.
