Self Portrait


Here am I furiously sketching my reflection in the window of a subway car when there was no one else available (I'm not even my own first choice). Today is sketch crawl And I'm off to meet some fellow sketchers in the city. Tune in tomorrow for those results.

Nice one, Steve! I love that you did this -- very clever.

I am SO looking forward to today!

You didn't imagine yourself naked then... Probably just as well. Would love to join the sketch crawl, just the sort of thing I need to get inspired. Great idea. Alas, I'm here inking an exploded refrigeration unit all weekend. Not terribly inspiring, but Fraser might disagree.

Bri, it's on baby.

Hans, nobody can do an exploded refrigeration unit like you, are you doing it naked?

Never draw with my clothes on, cramps my style.

What a great idea sketching yourself from your own reflection from a window even! Great looking portrait here!

Cammi said...

Looks great, I completely missed it, last sketch crawl I was moving and had no time to sketch.... maybe I'll see if I can do some sketching today but I'm sick.. :P Lovely timing.. enjoy your day Stephen! I can't wait to see your results!

Stephen Gardner said...

Heidi, next time you have to join us.

Hans, I know this to be true.

Rosy, thanks.

Cammi, we had a good day, try to catch the next one if you can.

Great sketch Steve, you appear to be clothed.
Great and it certainly looks "furious".

Hans, now I'm stuck, If I disagree I am agreeing, if I agree, I am also agreeing- you clever man.
Perhaps J9 agrees.

I haven't used ink in years, do they still go that way UK-side?

Moish said...

On the bright side - he's not sleeping, and he didn't walk off on you in the middle!

Stephen Gardner said...

I kept my jacket on for this one.

Your make a good point Moish.

Munich Newman said...

Steve, I have come back to this one after looking at the celery portrait of you.
This self portrait is really, really good.
There, just wanted to say that.
