I want to take Polaroids of as many people as I can, then draw every persons portrait.
I take a lot of Polaroids, which is a good thing for someone so crazy about these little instant wonders. But you always need a project to keep you trying different things, and making things for other people. That's where Sketchy Sketches come in. I'm not the best at drawing, and truth be told I'm still learning how to wield a Polaroid SX-70 so I want the opportunity to create a collection of Portraits drawn from Portraits.
Who Are You?
My name is Scott Southall, and I've been creating things for years because it's what I enjoy doing (and probably because girls like art). I've been taking photographs for a little over a year and I've been sketching things on and off since high school, but more off than on.
How Good Are Your Drawings?
That's the logo I drew for my music/photography website after I got frustrated with looking for another artist to make something for me, and taking the time to give it a go myself. I plan on trying my hardest not to screw these portraits up, because whoever lets me draw them is nice enough to let me sketch them poorly and I don't want to be the jerk that makes them look bad.
What are the funds for?
All of the funds raised for this project will go towards shipping you your reward, art supplies, and film. It all goes back into making things!
Hopefully you've got a little faith in me, and you'll support this crazy little endeavor. $30 is a great starting point, but I'd love a huge challenge, so tell your friends and try to give me plenty of work to do. Everyone that donates for a postcard or Polaroid will get a different sketch (unless you just like one of the sketches that someone else gets that much), so the more people that back this project the more I get to make. Thanks for stopping by.
