tHIS is a undergraduate self portrait i did a while ago..i like it...all the animals represent a aspect of my personality.
the animals i drew to create my face....like lips, nose...etc..:)


the artist arcimboldo ....inspired me to complete a whole series of these....symbolic self portraits.


arcimboldo was an impressive and painter..indeed..haha...


i hope you like it, sorry about the poor image quality,

at my undergrads... schools art gallery i was working at..where this drawing was being stored....a flood happened...a very huge flood..in fact...

...and..soaked it...so i don't have very many photos of this drawing...:D

i think i used 15 differnt aniamls...in this drawing...i have to stare at it for a bit..to see...haha...it is a shame that a flood ruined it...but it was drawn on a large scale...so it was easier to look up close, and see the animals in the face more....i might have a few photos from a show i put on...i will see if can find them...then you can see how big the drawing was.

thank you kindly.

thank you ...it did take a bit...but ... usually when i draw...I start and then the time flies buy and a few hours have past...

it did take a while..:D


i had to walk away a few times..hahah...cause it was done on a very large scale, and i wanted the animals to morph together.....(face)

arcimboldo was the artist that inspired me...

i also did a series i call "Prison horse Line " i think a few of them are in my gallery..haha...

i drew a bunch of horses...i used to live near..(i went to undergrad in huntsville, texas) alot or prisons...and horses...are what alot of the guards rode on to patrol)


they are very gentle animals..(i got premission from one of the wardons......& i drew them...and kinda used the same concept...but instead of drawing animals.to create the face...i filled the drawings i did of the horses.....( with human figures....)


thank you for taking a look...i like art that you have to sometimes take a second and or third look and you can see new things in the image....!

take care
