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?
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.
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.
