Remember I mentioned collecting old photographs because the hairstyles interested me? Well the distortion in this drawing is in the woman's face (too wide) not her hairstyle. It was an amazing mass of curliness parted down the middle and twisted into self-supporting "cones." I love it. I wanted to talk to her about it.
More about faces in the coming days. While I scurry to wrap up International Fake Journal Month short posts will reign.
Grab a friend and have a mini-portrait party. Sit still while your friend sketches you for 10 minutes and then switch. (Any longer than that becomes tedious. If the sketcher uses less time just switch early.)
