Hello World

My name is Shamus Collins. My wife came across a blog entitled "Creative Journey" by an artist named Myrna Wacknov. There is a link on that blog to another blog Myrna has created entitled "Drawn to the Mirror" and this is my point of interest. Myrna has set forth to create 365 days of self portraits that began on Jan. 1st. Well I am starting a little after the first of the year but I am going to make the same goal for myself. This sounds like a fun and inspirational way to force creativity. Let the fun begin.

110/365 Speechless

This one I really like. Simple, dark, light, and I think it represents me well. The title is "Speechless" because I have no mouth. Not because I think that this sketchling is so amazing that it leaves one speechless. One of my favorites though.



This one didn't quite turn out like I wanted it to.

107/365 Mask

This is me removing a mask of sorts. We all wear masks from time to time, sometimes being naked in front of the world is a difficult thing. Letting someone see who you really are. We need to scream to the world " Here I Am, like it or not this is Who I Am ". Well world, there are several faces of me in this self challenge. Let it be known that these are all just simplistic expressions of an image of the man. Some carry more weight then others, but all are sketches.
