STEP 1

I started working on a new self portrait. Here is my initial drawing. It always starts with a drawing. Traditionally I would proceed by “painting” over the drawing like I would a real painting, and the end result would have a “painterly” look. I thought it might be interesting to use patterns, typography and large fields of color rather than brush strokes and splatters to color in the drawing. I also want the drawing itself to play a bigger part in the final product. I’ve been in the mood to experiment with different approaches to image making.
