Self-Portrait (Aaron)

by Aaron Haah
(Columbus, OH USA)

Medium: Magazines

Size: 12x18in
Surface: Reg paper

This was one of my art projects at school. We had to use magazines to do our self-portraits and mine was picked as the best art piece for this project.

I expressed myself by using different colors and pictures. The most challenging part was my nose. I couldn't figure out a way to cut up the magazines the right way and to make it look like a nose. I don't know if it does or not but I tried my best.

Choosing the right tone for my face was also difficult. I was very pleased of how my hair and glasses turned out. Next time, I would express my eyes more differently and would choose different tone of textures for my clothing(I'm supposed to be wearing a shirt and a jacket but doesn't really show).

I also drew "Calm Seashore" in watercolor and the "Safety Pin" in pastel, so please leave any comments.
Thank you

Aaron Haah

Hi Aaron,

Very special. I am impressed.
And I like the clothing, the combination of the colours is great. It looks like African art.

Well done, Aaron.

EXCELLENT

I have just looked at your rose and glass and thought 'how good it is' but this is something else!

What an exciting piece of work. It is bright and colourful and so very well done!

I imagined what you would look like when reading your comments about creating the previous picture and funnily enough you are as I imagined.

This is a lovely piece of work and one that I could imagine would be enjoyed by people worldwide. It makes you feel happy when you look at it and would look excellent as a large print for a modern minimalistic home or an art gallery - really nice, keep being creative!
