Self Portrait by Chuck Close

There is a great article on Washington.edu about Chuck Close’s life growing up and how he overcame struggles to become one of the most famous artists of our time.

(Note: the above image is a very large scale pencil drawing of Chuck, while the one below is a large scale portrait entirely made by fingerprints.)
