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.

@ VOL 50 ON SEP 04, 2018

He plans to set a Guinness World Record for the largest painting ever (1 hectare or 10000m2) made up of 1200 life size Rhino paintings painted by the public around the world. After the certification by Guinness it will be taken to Vietnam and put on display to raise awareness and hopefully create a reduction in demand for their horns. He believes this is the only way our Rhinos can be saved as desperate poachers will continue to risk their lives if the rewards are so high.
