So here's the deal.

I had a bunch of thumbtacks left over from a prior picture and I thought I had a great concept. I was going to do a self portrait where I had the tacks on my face to resemble whiskers and I was going to have a clear strip of skin on one cheek. With a razor in hand it would look like I was shaving some very odd whiskers. The problem is that my face isn't firm enough to keep the tacks glued on. The only thing close was my forehead, so.... here you go. If someone could pull that idea off, I think that would be way interesting.

Back to the drawing board.
