Age 7 • Cork

The Matilda

This is me now. Because of lockdown I have been spending a lot of time drawing on my own, so I did a self portrait. My dad showed me how artists use a grid of squares to mark out where everything goes. I used a photo of myself to work from. I used pencil crayons. We also made a time-lapse video of me doing the drawing which was fun to watch afterwards.
