Sunday self-portrait

Gesture, Line Work

It’s difficult saying “I am pleased” with anything I illustrate, only because I am modest and critical. However, today’s self-portrait seems to bring a smile. With simple line, minimal color and sculptured gesture, I am content.

My illustrations have fallen off since school began and I became irritable. Ask my friend Kathy. Thank you for a push.

It’s not all that serious

The first day of school is 2 days from now and am sure the kids are not ready. They will have to regroup, get it together and otherwise; stop playing.

Tall order!

As for me, I have my game face ready, at least how I think they see me. I’m actually a very nice guy with a few tendencies toward sweetness. Maybe if they listened to a little Allman Brothers with me…

 

Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis occurs with insects, but rarely in human beings, unless I am watching a horror film or drawing. When doing an illustration, I am liberated to take a self-portrait and push up or down.

Metamorphosis. “Tommy can you hear me?“.

Most routines are safe in my hands, while genomic disarrangements bring out the artist.

I wasn’t able to continue a long string of daily sketches because of a freelance job. Yesterday’s project took the entire day, which depleted my energy to illustrate. Sometimes, working for someone else will do that.

Saturday night I guess is “selfie night” and now, a tradition. I like doing them because illustrations of one’s self are enemy number 1. I hate the line of the nose or curl of the ear. Nothing is perfect my mind’s eye.

Might as well be a “Saturday Night Massacre”. Bang.
