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.

159/365 Phone

This was sketched on my phone. There is very little room to work and few brush options. This is the result of several tries.

158/365 Book 2 Complete

This is the last page of my second book of self portraits. All were charcoal, graphite, and one pastel.
