selfportrait, 2024. 20 minutes

I don't know how many times I've drawn myself in any kind of authentic way. I don't think it's a large number. There is a child-version of me snuck into an upcoming painting from The Hylozoist, but that didn't start out being me, and became me only by admission after the fact. I feel weird about this one, but oh well, here it is. You can only hide from yourself for so long.

Edit: My daughter, 11, asked what it was, then asked if it was supposed to be me, then said I don't look that ghoulish in real life.
