Heads Are Gonna Float

Recently I have been doing a lot of busts of women in my art, or as my adviser likes to call them, floating heads. I quite often get comments about the girls being me, although I'm not entirely convinced they actually mean the girls look like me but that they reflect something about me.

I hadn't drawn in quite some time, but today I finally had images to work from and the foresight that the semester will be starting soon so I should put down some of the ideas I've had floating around my head.

Here are a few of my floating head girls. Do you see me in them?
