not great photos, but oh well.
I have chosen to draw myself because I am always there. I do not have to think about setting up a still life or model. I can jump directly into the experience of creating, which is the most important aspect of art to me. Because I am more interested in the experience of creation and the process, I do not normally focus on my physical presence. I have found that by using myself as a subject I am more aware of my body while creating. This discovery has resulted in a more involved and valuable experience by building a deeper relationship between myself and my drawing.
