39 more analogue selfies…

…all done late evening to keep up the daily drawing habit/obsession, and all drawn with bent-nib fude pens, great for both strong blocks of shady ink and fine lines for hatching… (Many of these have been posted to this fun group of fellow self-sketchers)




…and 168 others from the past few years!

    Deeply disturbing. You do realise that Google’s Deep Mind algorithms can now identify you everywhere?

    I really love your sketches. The detail is awesome!!!

  9. Wonderful. And poignant, although this poignancy (self-appraisal, individual vs. collective) could well be a projection of my overactive imagination!

      Ha! They’re mostly done last thing at night, to keep up the daily drawing habit, so I’m tired and having to concentrate on the sketch. I’m really quite cheery! I’ve had a sudden spike in interest in the post, can I ask where you saw it? Thanks

      • Abby says:

        I love that you said ‘I’m really quite Cheery’. Ok Sir. I will take your word for it. I saw the post on the WordPress curated collection of freshly pressed posts? It’s what you get when you click the Discover button?

      • Ed Mostly says:

        Ah, that makes sense, the Editor’s Pick. Thanks!

  12. This is really incredible. Love the drawings and the idea of the dedicated and focused practice. Your post seems to be appearing as a featured post on WordPress which may explain the spike in views. Hope it continues for you.

  14. “Analogue Selfies” might just be my new favourite term! Love the concept and love the sketches!
