A New Sketch

Well, for some time now, I wanted to do a new self portrait. I constantly depict myself as a child, but this time, I wanted to do something a little different. I tried to imagine if I were a children's literary character, who would I be? Some of you who know me well may have a variety of answers, but I always likened myself to the Hatter from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. As I worked on the sketch, I did not want to be influenced by any of Tim Burton's images that had been recently released from his upcoming feature based on the book. Besides, as much as I like the look and the design, I did not want to portray myself as "scary." And as I was drawing, I became aware that I looked very ... well, "up to no good." So I added my hands holding the teacup and saucer. So here's my sketch. I have begun painting and will post it soon - I hope. Happy
