Look, Ma, No Mirror!

But is it cheating to work from photographs, to use projecters, to trace? These methods have their satisfactions and their dissatisfactions.

Chinese Sharpies

Today I bought myself more colors of my favorite too-expensive brush markers, then came home and made this entirely out of extremely cheap fake sharpies from the corner store. Pungent and likely toxic, not very long-lasting and even apt to come apart when you take the caps off, they nevertheless make very satisfying, rich, wet, thick marks. Too bad I've bought them out and don't exepct to find them again.

Two-fisted

Magic Marker Self-Portrait by Julia Kay Midnight was approaching and I hadn't yet made my drawing - to speed things up, I drew with both hands at once! Magic Marker Self-Portrait by Julia Kay (detail of one eye, nose and mouth)

Dopey

I'm a little dopey from a medication I need to take for a week. Still working on the 'quick' idea, but this took 30-45 minutes anyway.

Distance

This morning I tried to stay a little further away from the easel, and the mirror.

Quick Sketch

Quick self-portrait with magic markers. That was fun... surely I can find time to do at least this much every day?
