My Face

Last year about this time, I came across a blog in England called
YourFace. The guy who had it offered to draw your face if you sent him a picture. I liked his style and was very excited to see if it would actually come true! I immediately sent him a picture and checked his site, sometimes daily, (more sometimes), to see if he got to me. I imagined a interesting drawing of myself, one that I could print on great paper and possibly frame.

After following his blog for a while, I found that he occassionally did themes, and with my photo it was a "1/2 off special", and as you can see he has left off a good portion of my mouth and neck/shoulders. After waiting so long, I felt disapointed when he posted my picture! Why did I hit the top of the list when he was doing 1/2 off? Why did I send him a picture of me in a costume?

Now that it's been a few weeks, I'm delighted to have it and am ready to post it here. I don't think I'll print it out like I originally hoped to, and now I'm searching for ideas of what to do with it ...

Any ideas?

And last but not least,
Thank You Damien!

Wow, how annoying! That previous comment is some kind of sales pitch so DON'T click on it. I'm sure there is a way to avoid those. Any suggestions?

I recall the photo or similar on your blog.

It is an interesting drawing in that he didn't draw a mouth, however your eyes are extremely intense and soulful so perhaps the interpretation. It does look like you.

Oh man I just clicked on the barb comment...you are right, it is super annoying. I didn't read your comment until after. I just clicked away.
I remember the photo that you posted too with the paint on your face. It's interesting, but I wouldn't know quite what to do with it either.

It is hard to relate the drawing of the Indian woman and that sweet face that you show on your blog, as being the same person.
