Caricature Attempt: Myself

This took forever.  I think drawing yourself is tricky because your brain knows damn well what you look like, and will detect anything that's off.  The hair drove me crazy too!
And here's a  revised version.   Resemblance is a bit better, but now it's losing some of the cartoony expression.

LIke the hair.

Believe it or not, the hair was one of my exercises for background details (although the hair is technically on me and not behind me.)
Part of the trick seems to be blocking in big shapes, subdividing into sub shapes, and finally adding details based on the sub shapes. Works for buildings, trees, a patch of flowers etc...
...still haven't quite mastered it.
