Episode 1: Self-Reflexive (Challenge)

The contestants' mission is to create a piece of art that captures the essence of a fellow competitor (ie: a portrait).

[See the full recap and extras at the Bravo site HERE]

Our mission? Create a portrait (open to your interpretation) that captures the essence of... well... anyone of your choosing. Any medium is acceptable. However, if you choose a performance piece, your submission should be a video still or image of collected stills, or a photo capture of your performance.

Submit 1-2 images of your final work along with a short blurb (no novels! just a few sentences) about your work, NO LATER THAN MONDAY, JUNE 14th at 11:00AM to lindseysmo(at)gmail(dot)com.

And remember, if you haven't sent your "I'm Interested!" email to Lindsey yet, please do so before submitting: lindseysmo(at)gmail(dot)com

Let's get this thing started!


  1. I'm sure I'm gonna earn myself the title of "Class Dunce," but... our portrait supposed to be of a contestant on the show, or of one of the artists doing *the blog* challenge?

  2. Not at all. Your portrait can be of anyone you want. Literally, ANYONE. =)

  3. SO excited!! This is just the kick start in the rear that I need!!

    I'm also really interested in getting to know the other people participating. Any chance we can set up a message board or a private Facebook page or something? I'll be happy to set it up if anyone else is interested... just let me know!!

  4. @Susannah: You should just come to Houston to hang out with us. Jennifer is the bomb-digiddy. ;) But seriously, I'm down for pages and whatnots, but that's gonna have to be on you (or some other willing participant), because this site alone is a lot for me to take on and manage right now (why I do these things when I'm already swamped is beyond me). You have my full permission to run with this as you please. =)

  5. I'll be happy to be in charge of that one! What would people prefer... a message board or a private FB page?

    And yeah... I should probably just come hang out in Houston... I'll have to look into that one.

  6. When it comes to the chat room/message board/FB page thing? I'm a complete dunce. Really? Your judgment call on what you think will serve everyone best. I can tell you, the less we have to sign up new accounts w/ passwords and whatnot? The better. So probably Facebook?

    And, Yes! Come to Houston anytime!
