NewsMan's SELF PORTRAITS!
(PSST! Don't Wanna Be Here? Go back home!)
NewsMan: anyways. i've compiled some of my old and new portraits. i know you like comparing stuff so.. yeah.
NewsMan: from newest to oldest:
NewsMan: we start with 2024.
NewsMan: i hope it's not too self-centered
NewsMan: this, i mean
NewsMan: i don't mean it in the "look at me and my art of myself" kind of way. these aren't as much about me as they are about someone else.
NewsMan: next up, 2023.
NewsMan: the next ones are from back before the Big Style Change,
as you'd call it
NewsMan: the spiked glasses started after the sunman nightmare. that was an interesting one
NewsMan: the style's really lasting a while! as of jan21 2024 it is still going strong.. these are the first years where i've made stuff that i still show off proudly!
NewsMan: i don't miss the rounded glasses
NewsMan: and last, 2022.
NewsMan: this one was the first one with the over-detailed style. did i ever tell you what was up with it?
NewsMan: i mean, yeah, it had meaning. i talked about that
NewsMan: what i mean is that i started over-detailing stuff
in the fucked up way only after seeing that old goofy
jeff the killer picture from 2004-2007
NewsMan: it scared the shit out of me after seeing it
at 4am in a lost media video
NewsMan: somehow, it inspired me. i wanted something weird too
NewsMan: it helped that my first year drawing teacher gave me that detail-focused assignment that led to me discovering that if you look closely, everything's complex.
NewsMan: i don't have much else to write.
wanna have coffee next week? my place's always open!
NewsMan: not actually open, i mean. but the cats might have the key
NewsMan: or maybe it is inside the russian doll on the tv
