Self Portrait: Hair

There are a few possible meanings behind this:

cleansing of the soul, i'm as free as my hair, the greasiest head alive, shedding of my old self, ironic because i don't have hair, new beginnings, oil spill awareness, etc. etc. etc. etc.

Mostly it's because of high school being over and pretty much me detangling all that gunk out of my hair, so to speak.

I pulled an all-nighter doing this, as well as waiting for the third Pottermore clue. The rainbow skin was a complete accident; it all started when I smeared that bit of blue on the chin...

Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils + spit, markers of various brands, Micron pen, 9" x 11"ish sketchbook paper.

Doodled over a course of about four hours.

So it probably took one hour total.

I'm tired. Goodbye!
