This morning I found this blog post which has collected a series of 20 author self-portraits. They range from comically bad (which is about my skill level) to absolutely amazing. I believe my personal favorite is this Bukowski piece, which to me just looks like a Saturday morning comic from the paper…
On the flip side this e.e. Cummings self-portrait is just beautifully done, the creation of art just comes so naturally to some people.
