Your portfolio of self portraits is ... just...exquisite!! The art you produce is stunning and beautiful! I've seen few people depicting portraits, self or not, so graceful and expressive and you top it. The ones I really like are IDs six, ten and thirteen.
haha i'm not depressed, but i do have a pretty grumpy resting face! especially if i'm working on a portrait for a few hours, it's too unnatural for me to change my expression for that entire time.. this is just how i look :] but i'm very happy for the rest! i'm definitely feeling you on the age thing! the closer i get to 30 the happier i am. when i think back to how life was in my early 20's i'm shocked by how insecure and unstable i was compared to now, hah.
