Enchanting Pairs of Pencil Portraits

Pencil portrait drawings in pairs.

Iranian Artist Tannaz Mirkarimi describes herself as a painter. As you can see from this post, I have deviated from that in choosing her pencil drawings.

Some of them look like the same person at different times in their lives. Some seem like two distinct people and others are the same person with different expressions.

No matter what the case is, the thing I love about Mirkarimi's work is the way her drawings emote. The amazing expressions that come out of these double feature portraits. I really enjoyed naming the people in the drawings. (As usual the titles are my own and they may not reflect what the model or the artist, had intended to portray.)

The abundance of smiles is a beautifully infectious characteristic, which I am hoping you will end up wearing, by the time you reach the bottom of the page. : )

Ps. I gave the images some titles.
Joy and surprise.
