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.
Interested? Ideas? Contact me.
