119 Portraits

BY MIHO OTA
@ VOL 133 ON FEB 24, 2016

“My birthday in 2014, i started asking all my friends to draw me. I set three simple rules: 1) don’t look at others until you’re done with yours 2) draw me on the spot 3) you can not use erasers”

In 119 Portraits from PechaKucha Night Tokyo’s 133rd Volume, Speaker, freelance writer, and sake lover Miho Ota detailed a project from which she had learned a great deal. On her birthday in 2014, Miho had decided to start a portraiture project, asking her artist friends to draw her portrait in a small sketchbook. The rule was simple: draw her on the spot, no erasers, and no looking of others until you finish yours. By her following birthday, Miho had a collection of 119 amazing portraits with countless stories attached to them.
