Why so serious?

Self portrait, black and white charcoal.

Ah, the selfie. That look comes from two things: a) love (usually of self) and b) concentration while drawing. Which is why I fundamentally dislike self-portraits. A drawing screams selfie from about a mile away. (On the other hand, of course, you are your own best model, because chances are, no one else will pose for you for hours without any pay.)

P.S. I want to paint a closeup of a car and title it “Auto ritratto.”
