Face

This week, let’s celebrate our many different faces.

This week at Discover, I chatted with illustrator Mica Angela Hendricks, who blogs at Busy Mockingbird, and loved what she said about drawing faces. “The lines in your face tell stories,” she said. “I get to ‘know’ a person through these lines, which is so fun for me.”

Mica likes to draw strange, imperfect faces the most:

When you’re drawing the details of someone, you’re spending intimate time with them in a strange way. Not romantically, but as an artist, you find this wonderful appreciation for what most people consider their “imperfections” — the wrinkles and lines in their faces, the lines under their eyes.

For this week’s photo challenge, let Mica’s insights inspire you: share a photo of a face. It could be your own face; the face of a loved one, whose lines and creases you know well; or even a face out in the wild, where you least expect to see one:

In a new post, show us a face — and feel free to share the story or the person behind it. We look forward to seeing your takes!
