Thumbnail for My Steadman Portrait

Decades ago, when the world was a better place, Ralph Steadman and I spent quality time together. All the while he never ever stopped drawing and during one of his downtime moments he sketched me in my prime. I had a bit of hair back then according to Ralph. Thanks for the support.

Additional ResourceWhile you may not have a hand drawn portrait of yourself, you’ve probably taken (or been a part of) a “selfie” at some point. The new book by Haje Jan Kamps, Selfies, looks at the culture of social networking and its influence on the self portrait while covering practical matters, such as how to take better photos of yourself.
