Self portrait Thursday - W23/11

Smurf

I like the little ladybird at the bottom of that picture.
It's funny to look at the self portraits and see how my style changes. I'm not sure if it is evolving or if it is just changing accordingt to my mood or other things.
Whilst I look kind of grown up in that picture, there are others that are much more childlike, or sketchy, or leaning towards a cartoon style.
I love flicking through old diaries and looking at all these little doodles and the stuff I wrote in there, remembering what I did at the time. Do you keep your old diaries?

I do!
and I love flicking back and seeing the style changes... and I often find little gems of sketches I put aside thinking they were horrific and after time has passed I'm thrilled to work on them again. :)

I have my first diary from when I was 8 years old but I was very perfectionistic back then and I have rippedout some pages. It is fun to read what I left.
