Making Myself Into a Comics Character

So, I'm working on a graphic memoir.  And one of the first things I needed to think about (and which I am still working out!) is how I'm going to depict myself.

That's a little weird. 

I need to really think about it, so I depict myself consistently.  Like, how many hair spikes?

And since this memoir involves a significant amount of running (well, at least, one part of it does), i decided I should practice drawing that.  Myself doing it, that is.

Below is just one page of my many practice sheets.  Trying to get the images into my hand's memory.

I am copying these running poses from a wonderful book by Preston Blair, which you can learn more about here.
