As part of my "fake it until you make it" plan, I commissioned Justin to do take my portrait in a "portrait of the artist" style. This is just in case someone wants to interview me someday... I'll be ready! I didn't want my picture to be taken with my art supplies or to be posed in front of things I've made. Rather, I wanted to have him make a fun and brightly colored photo because the things I make are generally fun and brightly colored.
I don't think I'm any great beauty but I must admit that I relish any opportunity to have my photo taken. I like the attention and I especially like when Justin takes pictures of me because I can edit the photos to make my blemishes disappear. I really really enjoy using the retouch tool to make my zits magically vanish!
I really like the above photo. Justin screamed something vulgar and I, of course, burst out laughing. I shouldn't encourage this behavior. If anyone (IE my Mom) wants to see a bunch more pictures of my face, they can be found on my Flickr.
