Make a self-portrait in your medium of choice on 18 x 24 in. paper. Try to be more conceptual with this drawing rather than making a traditional portrait. Use props or place yourself in a space, etc. The drawing above is a commentary on "Aging." It is a play on "Mirror, Mirror, on the wall . . ." The real strength of the drawing conceptually speaking is not in the portrait but rather in the bandaged hand holding the mirror. Very evocative drawing.
