The Portrait Project #1: Announcement



Hi guys,
hope you are starting the week end in a great way. Hope you guys have fun.
got a camera? why not spend the week end taking a bunch of cool portrait pictures of yourself?
why?

well, i'll tell you.
im starting a new project as of tomorrow.


i don't know where this is going to take, and why this project is going to end. but i know, that, right now, this is what i want to do.
it's cool, and it's fun.

right then.
i'll be collecting pictures from family members, friends, and total strangers first.
then, i'll turn those pics into portraits.
right now, i don't know how many i'll be doing, for what i know, this might be a long life project, or only a few months. it's really depends how many people are getting on board, and how much i enjoy doing it.

then, will see.

i'll definitely set up and online gallery on my web site, a facebook group/page where you'll be able to join, meet other 'portrait guys', post your original pictures and comment, basically the whole lot. it will be fun.

I want to take full advantage of the online platform available today.
i'll be posting pictures as i go on this blog, post the blog post on twitter, post the picture on facebook, post videos of me painting on YouTube.

(these, rather then email people their photo - sorry guys, one of me, hundreds of you = impossible. Also much more fun to get everyone involved)

if things go well guys, i'll be looking for a gallery somewhere, hopefully the big L,
(LONDON!) that will support my project and host a proper exhibition.
Will see, probably will have to put the work up for sale so i can buy more art supplies with the money and re-invest in The Portrait Project #2.

But I would also like to put all of the images on Red Bubble so you guys can get a nice good quality print for very little money, to keep as a memory. (think ahead, might be a good xmas present for your mum!)

Right you guys, so this is really cool.

great love, to you all, and all of your beautiful faces, i can't wait to see them all.

and have a great week end.
begin taking those cool pics, NOW!

ps. just stick the pics somewhere online & post the link here.
thanks!
