Student Self Portrait: Bernardo Villarreal

The drawing is a self portrait.  I utilized a picture I took of myself prior to drawing it.  In this case, I took a picture of the front of my face with the highly popular “selfie” pose. Taking into account that I’m not really a selfie person already (can you tell by my face?), this selfie was more awkward.  The snap made me remember of the abnormal times we are in.  I confess that throughout the drawing process, I fell into deep thoughts about this whole quarantine situation. Just looking into one face, my own,   I remembered “yea, this is how it is right now” and felt the distance  I have with everyone else at the moment.  It motivated me though as I knew that this piece will be a piece that I may look back one day when hopefully everything goes back to normal.
