I actually made it through three hundred and sixty-five days worth of self portraits. There were so many times when I wanted to give up. In the beginning around 80-100 days and again in the early 300’s. But at that point I had gone too far to give up.
The hardest part was when I already got into bed and then remembered, “shit, my self portrait for today!” Then drag myself out of bed and take a half-assed, not-so-creative self portrait.
The 365th picture (below) involved having a bunch of friends over to take a picture of me from their very own unique angle at the same time. I then gathered all of the pictures and composed a (somewhat) Picasso-like montage of a last self portrait. I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out.
It was hard to make the mental switch to stop worrying about taking a picture every day. I kind of miss it. There were still some cool ideas on my list that I didn’t get to, so I’ll probably still do them… some day.
