Self Portrait

To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.

William Shakespeare 


A very stereotypical self portrait, taken just before a night out.

I will begin to explore different ways of how people have created their own self portraits in different and creative ways.

“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” -Marilyn Monroe

Another quote I know but this I find is so true to myself I don’t want people in my life who can’t love me for me.

Although I like to be perceived as a very happy fun person, I would say that i have a darker side. I can get angry and upset easily and I do not forgive easy when people hurt me. As well as that I had a bit of a troubled teen years when my parents divorced. I feel that this image shows this. It is a manipulated image made from pictures that I have made scanned and photocopied and put together on photoshop. Although the images that are created are all full of colour and quite positive images they make up what I think represents the darker side of me.
