1st Anniversary tuesday 17072007



on the Headphones: "Salvador Dali Teaches Rex Harrison How To Say Butterfly" - mashup mp3


Today is the official 1st Anniversary of this project.

Yes it was July 17th 2006 when I Committed Myself to creating and uploading A Fresh Self Portrait Every Day.

Though I didn't join Shutterchance till early August 2006.

and initially I assumed I might want the option of taking weekends off, though I never bothered taking the option and soon settled on it being every single day.

Originally the project was intended to be a daily 4-panel self-portrait webcomic strip being uploaded to myspace.

But I soon discovered that myspace had a pathetically small image limit, which I came up against very very quickly.

That first day last year looked like THIS......

Nice Title. Its amazing you know russell that your daily portraits have become more stripped back and yet more rich and complex at the same time. I think you have done an amazing job over the last year so congratulations on the year long post. I am in awe of what you might produce in the future. great stuff mate.
russell higgs: Thanks Nev

You and Mal performing as a regular greek chorus, during the early months of the project, was a real booster at that time too. So thanks again.

Congratulations, Russell, on achieving an anniversary in this wonderful installation.

This is a great "glamorpuss" shot to mark the milestone.
russell higgs: Thanks Ray.

Aswell as 12 months of this Daily Project Committment, I've also enjoyed 12 months without a Telly in my Home and 12 months without any Tobacco too.
