I've never been good at drawing myself. I think that ego doesn't always allow us to accurately capture our self fully, flaws and all. This time was different though. I tried to channel my inner Frida Kahlo.. a woman who wasn't afraid to let her flaws (by society's standards) all hang out in her portraits: immobility, unibrow, mustache and all. I sat on the couch, mirror in hand, and studied my face; high forehead, bag plagued eyes, prominent nose, unruly hair.. After about an hour I was happy with what I created. A true 'selfie' of my minds eye.
