Artist's Statement:
As an art project in class, we all had our pictures taken so we could do a self portrait. We then drew the picture out and made a grid on the picture. Afterwards, we transferred that grid over to a larger piece of paper with the picture and painted it. We put chalk where we wanted shadows to be, and we painted the whole thing with India ink. I wanted to have dark shadows with lots of contrast, so I used chalk liberally wherever there was shadow, especially in my face. After the India ink had time to set, I washed it off to get this piece.
