Hi Kauri Tahi!
I've popped a poll over into the sidebar for you. It closes at 3pm today. Make sure you get on and vote if you'd like the photo below to be the direction we go for self-portraits this year! If you're not so keen, we'll keep looking together.
The technique is simple: take a photo, up the contrast/brightness, trace, then cut! We can talk about colour options as well.
