The dimensions are 9x12 and the medium I used was pencil. I'm glad I did this in pencil because it gave me an early reminder to never use pencil again. I definitely am not a pencil artist. I chose to do the assignment where you draw yourself in distortion and in pencil. This gave me the idea to draw a close up of a plate and spoon that is rested on a glass, and then draw myself on the spoon. The best part about this piece is that the crumbs on the plate were left from a piece of cake that I ate.
