Self-Portrait

This is what I look like(ish) in real life. I chose the most flattering picture of self I could find to use as a reference point and guide for this sketch. The original plan was to rely on nothing but a mirror to produce my self-portrait but I soon abandoned this approach when it began to feel a little too much like an exercise in self-punishment (à la Jane Eyre sitting in front of her glass determined to trace out all her so-called “defects” and “irregularities”).
