levi van veluw.

since i'm on an "artists who are blowing my mind" kick, here's another. levi van veluw uses his face as the canvas to create self-portraits that are not "a portrait, but an information-rich image of colour, form, texture, and content." the ballpoint pen ones are my favorite. my dad used to get SO MAD if i ever drew on myself {which i did all the time} and make me go wash it right off. i wonder what he'd do if i showed up home from highschool looking like this:

i love his expression in the top image and how the pen extends onto the ears and chest in both.
