Rena Littleson Draws Herself In Black And White Detail.

Australian artist Rena Littleson‘s latest self-portrait series puts her in situations and postures occupied by the self-conscious, the martyred, the shamed, the belligerent, and the confused. It’s not stated overtly whether these images are actually a reflection of her mind-state at any given time or not, but the drawings, though excellently rendered and realistically grey-scaled, hint towards some enticing darkness embedded within her character (which sometimes manifests through a love for Justin Beiber?). Possibly.

More can be seen on her website.
