Bad Art I Am Compelled To Share

Portrait

The theme for today's Illustration Friday is portrait and the first post I ever did on this blog was a self portrait. Interesting, for me anyway, to go back and look at that post now. Both this blog and The Unknown have changed quite a bit since that first post.

I guess that is the beauty of a portrait, it captures a moment in the life of not only the subject of the picture, but also the artist who created it. The portrait creates a watermark of where both have been and a map to help guide where they're going. (At least it does in my little world.)


With those thoughts in mind, I present a repost of the first post ever on this blog. Enjoy!
This is a self portrait of me looking at a tree. It was drawn on the back of a November 26, 2004 page from an old "Get Fuzzy" desk calendar. That date means nothing. Am I not handsome? Will you love me?

  • Yea, you were handsome back in "the day". Haven't you lost a lot of weight since then? It seems like you are all skin and bones--well, bones anyway.

    By Blogger Natura, at 15:04  

  • Oh yes! I do love this! I love the combination of manliness and intellect that is so clearly protrayed in this deceptively simple drawing. There you are, with that wonderfully masculaine stubble, your head planted firmly in the ground, ready to grow like the tree you contemplate...as an artist, as a blogger...It's so deep, and thus...I love it:>
