drawing challenge: the not-looking game

Today's tea break Drawing Challenge was to draw a self portrait without looking at the paper until it's finished. Go on, try it; the results can be quite funny! The more effort you put into drawing lots of details (hair, eyelashes, stubble, shirt collar, etc), the more wacky and interesting it can look.

I had fun playing this over the weekend with a couple people who stopped by our area at Thought Bubble comics festival in Leeds.
