Inktober 2017 Reveal (better late than never)

Happy New Year!
As you can see, it's been quite a while since I posted anything on here.
I must apologise. I'm very sorry. The second half of 2017 turned out to be incredibly
busy on the art front and I'm afraid to say that my Lostappeared blog took a back seat.
But not not to worry, it is back. Hooray!
So, carrying on from where I left off, here is the complete set of my inktober 2017 drawings.
Admittedly, I had set myself quite a challenge. A sheet of A4 graph paper was divided into thirty one areas, one for each day of the month. Every day I drew a section of a self portrait from life, posting the results on Twitter and Instagram on a daily basis so that followers could see the developments. Drawing straight on to graph paper forced me to be very selective, especially as I was drawing in ink. It was incredible hard to gauge how the whole piece would finally fit together, but somehow, it did. 
Here are all of the results building up to the final piece. Enjoy!
