I wonder how long it will take before I become comfortable with drawing myself. What will it take? What is the correct environment for that? and where does the creative energy come from? What is it about the pencil, the pen, or the paper that allows me to make such marks? and where does comfort fit in? How can I encourage myself to look at myself in a way that does not make me afraid or fearful? Or in a way that does not make me look away too quickly?
