The Selfportraitist

My inspiration for this piece is the all too familiar MySpace or Facebook profile picture.

I would say most of us are guilty of at least doing this once... Perhaps VanGogh and Kahlo are the most well known painters who would do this same thing. So taking the well known 3/4 face pose, and adding the familiar arm out needed to snap this's a very rough draft of my new piece:
Now...what kind of hair to give her? I'm thinking emo...
