"Uh-huh, honey."
Note: That’s a heart balloon with an arrow throw it.  The heart balloon was inspired from Banksy’s NY Heart Balloon stencil in Oct. 2013.-Wow Christmas Eve and NYE landed on the same days where I drew a self-portrait. Happy New Years, folks! :D

Self-portrait influenced by "ROYALS" by Lorde
"Let me be your ruler….Let me live that fantasy"
It took me quite a bit of time to grow on this song, before realizing how awesome it was.  Lorde is the ultimate thesis of anti-popstar, and I love it.  It’s too bad they kind of killed this song by playing it superfluously on the radio.  In the meantime, I think I’ll go listen to her other amazing song “TEAM” before the radio decides to kill that one too.  Maybe I’ll draw “Team” in one of these following weeks.  For now, here’s my take on royals.

Self-Portrait influenced by "THE MONSTER" by Eminem ft. Rihanna
"The very thing that I love is killing me, and I can’t conquer it."
It is a sin that I have done this project this long and have not drawn an Eminem song until now. Trust me, he’s my favorite MC of all time, the fact that I grew up to discover hip-hop because of him. I’m glad he’s back.

Old Beggar
I drew a picture of an old Chinese beggar that I found in a National Geographic article.  White color pencil on black paper.  I didn’t use any outlines, just drew based on “eyeing” straight from the article’s picture.

Self-Portrait influenced by "BLURRED LINES" by Robin Thicke
"…What rhymes with hug me?"   -Robin Thicke, 2013
Song/drawing requested by too many people to keep track of.
First off, I don’t really mind the corny goofy lyrics; a little bit of fun for a song isn’t so bad once in a while.  Second off, I drew those dots based on the beats of the song.  I am an extremely impatient person, do mind you; drawing this song within a small time frame constantly stabbing dots to trace my face was nerve-racking. On the third note, sorry for all of you trypophobics for seeing these hole-like dots for my self-portrait—blame it on Pharrell for the beat.  And finally, please tell the radio to stop playing this song so much. I seriously heard 4 stations playing it at once yesterday. Thanks.

I don’t think I’m going to withhold my song requests to do EDM for EDM Weeks anymore; this was a special case since there was so much request for this song.  Here it is!

My scanner doesn’t do my self-portraits justice…Anyone have any recommended good art scanners?
