Well, it's that time of year for seniors, the time of senior self portraits for the poster.
I wanted to take a simple approach, but I ended up doing three versions before finding one I liked
This is the final version, the one that's going on the poster, just pen and ink
this was the first version, I'm not crazy about it now, I look like I got caught outside in the rain
And this was my second version, which was okay, but I still look about 12 years old, and it doesn't really look like me
There are times when it all clicks, times when you have to fight a bit, and times when you need to not be scared to start over and do three versions. Students expect it to always click, and I don't think it's like that for anyone, for every piece to come naturally. As Pratt says, you can't always be shooting off fireworks.
Also, for the Hallmark Contest I'm tied for third place! You can vote every day if you want. Thanks to everyone who has voted so far :)
