All Dressed Up For The Holidays: 2009.12.23

(But happily not going anywhere)

Magic Brushes App on my iThing.

From a previous drawing.

40 - 60 minutes.


Once again, all the brushes are holiday-themed clipart and objects, including reindeer for the face, santas for the hat's fur, and christmas trees for the shirt.


This is part of my Daily Portrait Project, in which I make a non-photographic image of myself every day and post it on the web. This series of self-portraits can be viewed in it's entirety at

    Thank-you Hansol and Lindsay! . I actually wasn't going to do any holiday portraits this year, and ended up doing them due to a miscommunication - a happy miscommunications since these were really fun to do! And I do think this is the most successful one I've done where the brushes are perceivable objects
