Over 50,000 drawings from 93 countries were submitted during the project's first year.
THE THREE STEPS
This is the first Selfless Portrait I received of myself. Participants can send a friend request to whoever they draw, or whoever draws them. I’m happy to say Morganna Batista from Brazil (the artist) and I are now Facebook friends.
My stab at drawing a Selfless Portrait. Amazingly, Marxseny from Brazil accepted my friend request in spite of this.
Portrait of Ivan Cash, the project’s co-creator.
One of my favorites. Drawn by Daniel from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
This artist knew their drawing would appear side by side with the original in the site's gallery, so rather than drawing the person, he reimagined the background instead. Lots of parking lot chaos here.
Another creative play on how the portrait would appear alongside the original when viewed in the gallery.
