Self portrait journal page

Self portraits are interesting. You could capture how you see yourself in various ways. Here are several of the top of my head:
  • photo of face, full body or body part
  • photo of stuff you love or use
  • sketch/painting/collage of all of the above
  • written sketches
  • video
(Click on image to enlarge).
Here is a recent one I did. A sketch in my journal. Pen and watercolors. It does not look like me - you would not be able to identify me if this was the wanted poster used for America's Most Wanted - but it captures some of the essence of what makes me me. And I always learn something about myself in the process.

When was the last time you created a self portrait? Do it now. Are you surprised at what looks back at you?
