In December 2009, Karin Jurick through her wonderful website "Different Strokes From Different Folks", mounted a portrait challenge. 180 people from around the world were to submit a head and shoulders photo of themselves to Karin so that some other person of the 180 would paint it. Painters painted each other anonymously and then Karin posted all of the wonderful paintings and drawings on http://differentstrokesfromdifferentfolks.blogspot.com/2009/12/hold-your-horses.html
She also created fantastic YouTube videos of the photo morphing into the painting. Be sure and take a look at these as well. It's a fabulous viewing experience!!
As a Thank You to Karin Jurick Tribute, 118 of the above 180 artists (those who could be located) painted a portrait of Karin from a photograph supplied to them by Jill Polsby. I've created a link to the Picasa album for everyone to enjoy and I've copied the link to the Snapfish book that was created and mailed to Karin as a huge thank you from her fans.
I can't thank everyone enough for their enthusiastic response to this Thank You Project for Karin. Thank you!!
Snapfish Album ordered to be sent to Karin:
It's been noticed that some of the Snapfish pictures appear cropped. Snapfish dictated the size of the photo and some of the paintings were affected more than others. My apologies if it happened to your work. When you get to the Snapfish site, below the pictures over to the right....you can click on an icon that gives you a much bigger version of the finished book.
