Can't keep toothpaste in my mouth...
This is a sketch that came into being gradually, with no plan. After the first couple of iterations I thought I'd share it's evolution here. 
The finished work....
Progress on this illustration... in chronological order (first to last).
The original - as instagramed. I thought it was as far as it was going.
This doodle keeps growing. It started as a face then someone said it looked like a face in a mirror, so the toothbrush portrait idea was added....
 
Added strokes. It gets really complicated because shapes are easy to cut away. When you introduce strokes, everything has to be ordered appropriately and where objects overlap and interlap, you have to be hacky, which kind of takes away from the point of vector illustration - being able to change shapes on the fly.
 
Added more to the bathroom environment, improved colour scheme.
It might be getting overboard... but I'm feeling like an interior decorator now....

Vector illustration. A kind of self-portrait.
