A long time ago, I came across a web site encouraging people to post 7 line portraits of themselves. This intrigued me greatly. There was some amazing pictures that people did. Some were very detailed with very long lines, others had simple, short lines. It reminded me of that old Police album, Ghost In The Machine where the three band members are represented by some 7 segment LED type things.
This really boils the portrait down to what the minimum information you need to convey the image of a person.
I got to searching for the 7 Line Portrait gallery this morning and I couldn’t find it! I guess it has been removed. So, in honour of that, I decided to try my own hand at the 7 line portrait.
Here it is.
