More Hair—a Selfie

March 7, 2022


I’m wrapping up the current hair series with a selfie. My braided hair of course.

I don’t do selfies often. I have to stand in the bathroom and juggle pens and palettes. 

I was frustrated late one night because my foot was in a cast and my vision was particularly frustrating.

But there is always something soothing about picking up a brush pen and sketching hair—thinking about which lines you’ll put down boldly or with a light touch, and what all the intervening spaces signify.

In this way it’s easy to see drawing is a metaphor for life.

Then you can go to bed whether you were able to see details or not.
