Self-portrait in pen

Objects as self-portrait – sketches.

One of the first projects of the D&A graphic design course was similar in nature to the still life/oil painting: a self-portrait using objects. The objects in my portrait are a character teapot from Golden Bay, a bottle of Pinot Noir, precious family letters, a little leather bag (for guitar picks), greenstone earrings made by yours truly and my 35 mm camera.
