The Challenge: Take one self portrait each day for a year.
Do you think you have what it takes?
Emily recently told me about this social phenomenon happening over at Flickr where members try and do just that. Their goal is to take at least one photograph of themselves each day and submit it to the Flickr group. Sure, it might sound easy at first. I mean, how hard is it to take a picture of yourself? But do you think you can do that every day, for a year?
Well, that is exactly what the instigator of this task set out to do. Steven Poff, who also sells his artwork on Imagekind, decided to take up the challenge well before there was even a Flickr group dedicated to the craziness. After starting the project in 2006, there are now over 9,000 members of the group. If you are working on your own 365 day set, then leave us a comment with the links!
Travis, Emily and I found this quite fascinating and decided to try it out ourselves. However, let’s be honest, we soon realized we don’t all have the resilience necessary for this extreme challenge. So instead, we decided to change things up a bit, and now we need your help!
Instead of one self portrait everyday for a year, we decided to do one self portrait for one day of the year; today! Also, to make things even more crazy (since it is Friday), we changed the medium from photography, to illustration, and have all drawn our self portrait.
We had quite the argument around here as to whose was the best, so we thought we’d elicit your opinions, to help us determine without bias, who has the best mug. Check ‘em out below.
Make sure you vote for which one you think is the best!
