ATCs: Self-portrait by Request

Self-portrait for Jan
2.5" x 3.5" pen and markers

I made this artist trading card by request.  I’ve had a number of people ask me for self-portrait cards when we arrange personal trades.   That surprises me since I’m a complete stranger to them.   But I suppose that doesn’t matter if you like the drawing.

I did this from a photo I found of myself most likely taken during my brooding late teen years or my early 2o’s.    You couldn’t pay me to be that young again.  I like being in my 40’s, thank you very much!

  1. Do you like being 40? I don’t even like being 29 or so, what’s your secret? By the way, your self potrait fabuoloso, wonder when I could be as good as you?
