Classically trained artist Tony Griffin can draw as well as anyone, but his poetic touch is what sets him apart. In each of these self-portraits, one of his eyes has more clarity than any other part of his face, giving a relaxed intimacy to his expression.

Tony says: 
Funny all the self-portraits were done in the same old, dusty mirror which I keep dusty so I don't see too much detail.
