Great idea: Put a self-portrait at the end of your sketchbook
While reading a post the other day on Jana Bouc's blog, I came across a very nice idea which consists in creating a self-portrait as the closing image for your sketchbook. Since I was about to come to the end of one of my current sketchbooks I got to work on this idea today and this is what I came up with:
I have to say that sketching with inks means that you cannot erase or correct anything, so my self-portrait is not as life-like as it would have been if it had been first sketched in pencils; but then, it was a quick one, as the only mirror in my flat is in the bathroom and I therefore drew it standing at the sink... no exactly the best way to create... and yet... it was certainly a fun thing to do.
