International Day Of Self Portrait Oct. 22nd, 2006 @ 11:41 AM Reply

Over at Concetpart.org, i saw this thread about an international self portrait-day.

The date to remeber is
1 Nov 2006

There is only one rule: Do your self portrait on November 1. NO PREVIOUSLY DONE ART.

This is meant to be a world-record thing, hopefully it gets big and awesome and stuffness.

You can post your portraits in this thread ON 1 NOVEMBER, NOT BEFORE 1 NOVEMBER.

Details

Picture from Conceptart.org, im not claming it as my own work.

Dare? This is not a contest or anything. They just want as many people as possible to do a self portrait on 1 nov.

You're supposed to do the selfportrat/s on 1 nov only, no old work. Other than that i dont think theres a limit.

alrighty then!
How is the world record attempt being monitored? surely there must be somewhere that all the portraits go to be counted or whatever?

I think LaserKarl will count the number of selfportraits here and send it to Oblio(from Conceptart.org)

But do we also have the same rules as there? That it should fit in that border?

Wow, that was a really pointless post.

I know I'll be doing a self portrait. It should be interesting to see what people come up with.

Here's is mine, first in the thread! I used my webcame as a mirror so super washed out colours. I'm not particularly happy with it, I tried to go for painty kinda style but i think it just looks kinda dirty. Anyways, I spent some time on it and contributed to the self portrait day so I'm pleased. Comments?
