self portrait

Shady Lady

Well folks, here it is. My first-ever self portrait. (Carved, of course.) It was an interesting sensation to dig my own face out of a lino block, but I'm pretty pleased with the results. I wasn't sure how well I'd do on my eyes, so I'm saving them for a future endeavor. Hence, my classic aviators, which I absolutely adore!

This is just the first print - I'm still experimenting with the colors, paper, etc. but I think she's going to make a splendid addition to the portfolio I've been working on!


  1. ahh yeah!, I like it!

    Nice picture, do you have some tutorial of your skill?

  2. Glad you like it! :)

    I don't have a tutorial yet, but I've been thinking about doing one... I'll definitely keep you posted!

    Have a great weekend!
