Self Portraits and Lingerie

Today was pretty uneventful. I had my Drawing II class where we practiced drawing portraits. The second half of the class we did self portraits. I'm not all that fond of self portraits because well... you have to stare at yourself in a mirror and draw. If doing a self portrait doesn't make you realize every single thing that is wrong with your face, I don't know what will. From staring at myself for three hours I have realized that my left eye is bigger than the other eye, my double chin is unpleasant, my nose is horribly difficult to draw because it is so upturned which can easily result in a pig nose, and my skin is breaking out. Because of my class today I shall now begin taking better care of my skin.

In other news, one of my favorite stores is having a sale on their lingerie. I am a big fan of lingerie because lets be honest, what woman doesn't like to feel sexy??  But sadly I am a poor art school student and must save my money for food and supplies and Valentine's Day/my boyfriend's birthday gifts. Why did he have to be born four days after Valentine's Day AND on my Dad's birthday?!

  1. I really don't get the lingerie thing. It all looks so damn uncomfortable. I did drag once on a large, and god damm! I do not know how you girls do it. I cannot image how it must feel to have anyone staring that intently at you, let alone yourself. We are our own biggest critics.
