I am incredibly excited about this new series by Dutch artist Jacob de Graaf.
An artist living and working in York, UK, de Graaf challenged himself to create at least one portrait a day for a year, under a strict set of rules. He is free in technique and material as long as the resulting work exists in a physical manner (i.e. no digital art), is uploaded to his blog Daily Portrait by midnight each day, and excuses are only welcome as the result of death, serious illness, or natural disaster.
Amazing. Reminds me a little of the portrait work I did in high school, which I really need to start up again... perhaps in the form of blog? Something to think about!
See the series on Daily Portrait.
Shop the portraits on Etsy.
