In 2015 I spun up a project called Me By Me, where participants draw a life-sized nude portrait of themselves, and then pose next to it. I did about 20 shots in the basement studio, and then packed the whole thing up and took it to the Seattle Erotic Arts Festival. Over the course of the event, 80 more people picked up their markers and threw off their clothes to make some art!
Two years later, I decided to restage Me By Me at SEAF. This time, 95 people went through the process. Yikes… that’s around 200 since I first started this project!
Since this is now becoming somewhat of a thing, I decided to put together a gallery of sample images. I asked participants if any would like to opt-in to being included, and happily quite a few have been willing to show off their artistic skills.
