The Urge To Portrait II

...Which brought me to revisit the concept of 'Self Portrait'. I haven't done one for quite a while. In fact, I was really only putting them down by my school's instigation. And of course before that, naturally. But the attempt had not been made since graduation, until now.

I enjoy the furrow - I like the many implications behind it, even though most associate a furrowed brow with anger, disappointment, or confusion. For me it frequently accompanies focus, inquiry, fascination, and contemplative amusement. So, I used it this time around.

Here I am as of age 24:
