I've been struggling with creating a suitable public image of myself to use on blogs, Facebook, etc. This is the latest creation. I held out the digital camera in front of my face, took a photo in bad light, and did a Live Trace in Illustrator.
I've also been doing a lot of cafe sketching lately. The sketch below was made at a local McDonald's. You would hardly believe it's a McDonald's. There are a lot of interesting abstract shapes. The first image is the cleaned-up digitized and vectorized version of my pencil sketches. The actual pencil sketches follow that.
