I haven't done a self portrait since spring of 2013, so I thought I was well past due for one. I think self portraits should be done at least once a year... with every one I learn something new about myself, and on a more basic level it's just a good artistic exercise. In the spirit of exercising, I used pencil which is not my usual medium. I know this drawing has a lot more that could be done to make it "complete," but the point was to sit down and crank out a drawing, not fiddle with it for days. This took 2 to 3 hours total. You can view it along with other portraits here.
