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.

This was a quick sketchling. 5 or 6 minutes.

This looks a lot like me. I changed pencils and didn't rush to get the whole face done. What I did finish I am pleased with.

118/365 For Amy

This sketchling is for my beloved Amy. She tells me that I need to smile in more of the sketches. Here you are, it's just for you. I just wish that I didn't look like a lady in it. Oh well.


117/365 Forty-Five

All the lines were done on a forty-five degree angle. Just trying something new.
