Sketchbook Skool: Selfies

Danny Gregory on (drawing) selfies:

I draw self portraits because my model is

A) super handsome
b) poses for free
c) always hanging around

Self portraits have show me how I draw how I feel as much as what I see; they’re a constantly shifting reflection of the inner me. Each day I change and so does my drawing.

I’ve never given much thought to self portraits, but they make sense if you want to practice faces. Koosje Koene draws some of the most amazing selfies I’ve ever seen, so I suppose it’s not surprising that this was her assignment. We drew three kinds: contour, photo, and mirror. I really like how my mirror selfie came out, but the contour is probably the most accurate. The photo ones amuse me because I drew my badge photos: terrible drawings of terrible photographs!
