ART POST: Self-Portrait - February 14, 2019

This post is a drawing I did over the course of a few days.  I wrote a journal entry about the drawing on February 14, 2019, which coincidentally is Valentine's Day.  Here is what I wrote:

"A little while ago I wrote a poem called "The Best Rainy Day."  That day is now the second best rainy day.  Because today was even better.  I didn't know what I was going to draw until I started drawing.  The first thing that came out was my name.  Then I made it 3-D and colored it.  Then I wanted to draw a figure or something, and I thought a person meditating would be cool.  Then I decided to put a skull on him to remind me to always be present and never take the future for granted.  The skull isn't any kind of morbid thing.  It's just a reminder to be grateful that you're here.  Be happy right now."

Under that are the words, "Self-Portrait, February 14, 2019."

Followed by, "Life is a master class, and the game is 'no ego.'"

Thank you for checking out my work.
