I have a bit of a hangover today after seeing the incredible The The in Birmingham last night. I’m blaming this for my lack of ideas for today’s sketch – yes, it’s another self-portrait!
My old art college buddy, Clive Russell, pointed out a few areas for development with the last self-portrait and suggested that I draw in pen with no rubbing out. That’s what I’ve done!
The result is okay. It looks a bit like me although the mouth is a bit small and the glasses aren’t quite right.
Drawing with pen means you have to focus on what you’re looking at and be confident in your mark making – something best left for hangover free days.
