"This made my day."
-Stranger #13, via Twitter
I draw strangers - for them, for practice, for fun, and for free.
I find photos of strangers in many, different places. Mostly from RedditGetsDrawn - a "community for redditors who want to get drawn and redditors who want to draw them!" - but also from various, other online, similar sites and sources. Here are a few.
Favorite Drawing of Me
In January 2021, a friend posted their favorite photograph of themselves online. I saw it and decided to surprise them by drawing them. The entire experience and their positive reaction inspired me to start a small, personal project: I'd find totally random strangers on Twitter that publicly posted their self-described "favorite photo of themselves"...and I'd surprise them by drawing them - for them, for practice, for fun, and for free.
Between January and March 2021, I drew 100 strangers as part of my "Favorite Drawing of Me" project. The project is now done (click here for more info), but you can view all the photos and drawings on Twitter at #FavoriteDrawingOfMe, or below (from newest to oldest).
I hope you like them...!
