i had to bully lindsay into letting me post this self-portrait instead of another nice-but-less-self-portraity drawing. it reminded me of a few portrait exchanges that i did in college when friends gave me drawings, suddenly became embarassed by the drawings, but i refused to give them back. i guess i'm kind of stubborn. sorry, lindsay, but thank you for indulging me. this drawing is so much better for the self-portrait project and the process was weird and fascinating.
