Note to Self
Self-portraits have been a staple of artists for hundreds of years. Not only is the artist able to work from his own reflection, self-portraiture offers insights into the artist's psyche and identity. From Frieda Kahlo to Cindy Sherman, it is particularly poignant for women to objectify themselves as the subject of their own work. Artist and blogger Mara Thompson has opened up a call for mail art based on self-portraits, Note to Self, and is posting the entries on her blog. Consider looking in the mirror and submitting one of your own.
