These are some rough ideas for a self portrait I am working on. It is part of an assignment that I created for a high school art student that Jeff Harter is working with. I figured I would execute the same assignment that I gave her. It is a self portrait created using Collage as the medium. The working space is 12X18. I haven't decided which direction I am going to go with so if you have any opinions on the sketches fire away.

Wahey, the Butcher's back! Good to see new stuff from you, but do you really look like a hillbilly?!

Hmmmmmm, hillbilly? I do have long hair, a long shaggy beard, sometimes wear suspenders, and enjoy wearing hats. Would that classify as a hillbilly? I dunno but if yuse dun fined out lemme know. :)

Hey, Ben! These are a crack-up - even the Mountain Dew. Always great to see your style.

Im thinking top middle. Combines the dew with more dew and lots of more dew. Use lots of dew....Its all about the dew!

I like the bottom right- just add a suspender in there, show an earring, make that can say Mt. Dew and it says "Ben".

The top middle one is an accurate portrayal of Ben's daily Dew intake, I can vouch for that. :D

Hi, Ben-
Forgot to give an opinion - I like the center portrait the best, though the playing card one is clever, with the obligatory chips!

Dude, Mt. Dew needs to do a commercial with you as their spokesperson. I like the upper left... It's all you. Or do them all, sell them to upper deck.

These all rock! I think the one in the middle on the left is pretty cool. Ben the playing card : )
So what's new with you buddy? I hope life is treating you good.

Jeez, nothing since May. Don't get me wrong Ben, I understand. But how are we supposed to learn anything if you don't guide us?

All kidding aside, I love this blog and if you check in once a year that's fine with me. I get to see you at DCP all the time anyway. Lucky me!
