Reunion Self Portrait by fledermaus Reunion Self Portrait by fledermaus
Drawn the night before I got into the dorms for reunion (cheaper than a hotel, yes, but so noisy, including broken wine bottles in the stairwell and yelling one night, that I didn't get much sleep). In fact, drawn when I should have been asleep, therefore a bit messy- with a ballpoint in the hotel room, and a red crayon I'd grabbed off the floor of a restaurant where I ate dinner (from the kids kit). When I was in college I had a drawing that lived on the door- my hair was turquoise then, and the pose and clothing are a bit different, but same purse (which I forgot to crosshatch)- so I made a new one for reunion last minute. It was a way to denote which door was mine.

I kinda like the ballpoint. I'm usually obsessed with clean lines, it was nice to use something that made that really impossible- even where I didn't manage to smudge it.

Again, no, I don't really look like that. I never aim for realism in self-portraits, just in portraits of others.

Thanks! They're my "everyday" boots, though the back of one is starting to give (I have to see if I can fix that, I so don't want to give them up). All hail the gods of the thrift store.

Thanks! I was really happy I found that red crayon, it added a lot to it (even if my hair is a more pinky red now really, close enough).
