Self Portraits

This first face is made with melted crayola crayons. I sat down at a table with a torch and went at it. A new way of coloring and it was alot of fun.
This one is all sewn together. I made a drawing on tracing paper and then with the sewing machine went on top of a grid of fabric I had also sewn together.
This was the first of six self portraits I completed. My dad got me the wood burner and I wanted to experiment with different lines and textures.
This one was gouache, sharpie and some yarn glued on top for extra emphasis. This was the final of the six and by this point, I was beginning to know my face more than I ever thought I would.
This portrait I experimented on more fabric but this time squirting ink right out of the bottles.
