jeannette langmead is the well-deserved winner of the first portrait party contest. her prize will be posted (and mailed) as soon as our portrait swap is completed. thanks to all the portrait partners who helped her along!
when i was younger, my family and i used to have portrait parties. we would congregate in the living room every few months and turn our attention from person to person, drawing everyone in the room. it was such a pleasure and so normal in my life that trading portraits became a regular event when i left for college, when i moved to new towns, when i met new friends or favorite artists. tommy kane suggested that it would make a good website. so, that's what this is... AND YOU'RE INVITED!
