Love this girls crazy hair! Though I’m not quite satisfied with the face portion of this drawing because it doesn’t look exactly like her, I figured that I wouldn’t keep erasing and re-drawing for fear of ruining the rest of it. Hope you all like it! (Original:http://www.lomography.com/homes/shrista/albums/1800791-who-i-am-hair-series/photos/15247846)
Talk about talent! And no, I’m not talking about me. In addition to her beautiful photography, Natalieerachel recreates self portraits of other people by hand. I was lucky enough to have my self portrait drawn by her, she has so much talent and goodness knows I wish I could draw like her! Thank you for this, Natalieerachel!
Self portraits have taken on a whole new meaning, giving rise to selfies, cell phone shots, and numerous phone apps to help make the selfie easier and more flattering to take. Before the selfie craze started, I did a self portrait series about “Who I Am” – one of the things I did is exaggerate my hair because that’s how so many people identify me. This is one of the photos in the series, and the one that Natalieerachel recreated.
