January Self Portrait Challenge: Duality

This month we'd like you to experiment with representing the dual nature of your personality visually by "cloning" yourself in an image in a style similar to that in this article: https://goo.gl/l79ps0 . The style doesn't have to be exactly the same (you don't have to sit next to yourself at a table) but stick with just two parts of your personality being put at odds somehow, and try to keep it simple. You can represent any two differing parts of your personality - juxtapose public/private, inside/outside, at your best/worst, etc... interpret as works best for you.
Extended rules below.

Just post your entry to the “Challenge Submissions” Category in the Art of Self Portraiture Community (can be found here: http://goo.gl/VbVTm4). If you’re not a member, you just have to join the Community to post, which is easy and we are happy to have you!
