"Sketch - Self Portrait"

I got a nice new sketchbook, which hopefully should inspire me to more frequent drawing. Even though it's not part of a project, with a deadline, I'd like to apply the same discipline to filling its pages. My first attempt was dreadful, as one of my eyes was way too far over. But my second try was better:

Graphite pencil, colored pencil and ink pen on acid free paper, 17.8 x 25.3 cm (7 x 10 in.)
