Every couple of years, in some medium, I do a self-portrait. It's interesting to go back through them and reflect. Here's how I did mine this year. It's an Indian ink silouette filled with everything that makes me...well...me. Here's how you can do it too.
Then, I just filled it in with little pieces of me. Art colleges can teach you more about self-portrait and other art and design concepts.
UPDATE: After an overwhelmingly good response from the internets (I call two comments on one post an overwhelmingly good response) I've decide to post these portraits to my etsy store for custom order. Click away if interested.
