These days, images of ourselves are constantly around us. Digital photos, video, ID cards, avatars, on and on and on. I'm documenting my life in a different way: by commissioning annual(ish) portraiture in pre-digital media (painting, printing, illustration, sculpture, film photography, etc.), in what I'm calling The Portrait Patron Project. I'm excited about the project because it both indulges my interest in portraiture and my desire to use my discretionary income to support the creation of original art.

The first portrait in the project was funded by a portion of my stimulus payment (just about the only good thing I ever got from George W. Bush) and was created last summer by limnrix, and I'm now looking to commission the next portrait in the series.

If you are interested, please email me with examples of your work, and we will discuss the possibilities and my price range. If you are not in the New York area, please let me know about your experience in working from reference (rather than a live subject). Please let me know if you have any questions.
