whitney houstin said it best: “learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all.”
so, in honor of valentine’s day, the Portrait Party will celebrate the greatest love of all with an entire month of self-portrait parties. draw yourself. share the results. self-portraits will be posted until midnight on february 29th.
(feel free to share your portrait swaps also. i will resume posting them in march.)
our very own, penelope “d-bomb” dullaghan, got us started with the gorgeous self-portrait above.

kerstin klein (portrayed above by several of her portrait partners) is the winner of the portrait party scavenger hunt. kerstin was the runner-up in the first portrait party contest but, with an actual factual portrait party, she sniped the scavenger hunt from jennifer m. lee. visit the december archive to see what i mean.

I like the fun, fun work of illustrator Lesley Withrow! From patterns to greeting cards to children’s illustration she really has some amazing stuff. Do yourself a favor and poke around her blog.

my entire afternoon was consumed by David Rubin‘s blog. it’s a great place to flex one’s spanish reading skills* but the artwork speaks a universal language… well, my universal language anyway.
* if you don’t habla the español, babelfish can help.

i found a new kindred spirit and art hero this weekend. julie oakley‘s drawings of her family and their life together struck a cord in me. in ten years, i hope my sketchbooks look just like hers.
