Thanks Marianna Rossi for a great writeup of the Portrait Project in SOUPmag that gives a good peek into the life of a traveling art documentarian...life on the road...questioning and connection.

Paris, France images (June 12-14, 2011)

The Paris portraits are online! Thank you, Sitters 56 thru 65, you know who you are!

Things I won't forget about this trip: chatting about drawing, audio documentaries and lost love at Café Culture Rapide, street fair in Belleville with fabulous Brazilian tranny,  nocturnal catacombs, riding bikes across Paris in the rain at 4am, drawing in front of Shakespeare & Co....

Now only 9 more cities to go.....

Here's what I listen to while I scan:

Couchsurfing love

The Portrait Project and I were featured this morning in the Couch Surfing "Surfers Making Waves" page.

This is great motivation for me to finish scanning and sending out those 60 portraits from the tour!

Thanks so much to Mars for the coverage of the project on the CS page. Couchsurfing.org has been an uncannily good incubator for the idea of a randomized traveling art performance, and I don't think I would have been able to have such an interesting trajectory and sampling of models without CS.

Also a great reason to consider Tour #2---but I'm going to need some help. I need ideas for cities to go to, and I need a sponsor to underwrite my airfare and travel expenses.
