I've been spending some time in my favourite part of the country recently, the west! I found out about this portrait project in Bath and want to share it with you. The 3CS project is an experiment by digital artist Tom Bagshaw who is attempting to produce 100 digital portrait studies in 100 hours, over 100 days.
The title 3CS is literally CCC, the roman numeral for 300 or 100, 100, 100.
On the 1st of September 2011, artist Tom Bagshaw will begin a unique project to create a portrait study in one hour, one every day, for one hundred days!
In order to accomplish this task he needs your help. He is asking for 100 willing participants to turn up at the Fine Art Print Company in Bath, UK at 12 noon on the 1st of September!
If you would like to in with a chance of having your portrait digitally painted, for free- the first 100 to arrive at FAPC will be asked to give their contact details and sign their understanding of the project then be invited to sit for a couple of quick photographic reference shots. They will then receive a ticket with a unique number relating to their position within the 100. When all the reference is collected and sorted the painting can begin!
The 3cs blog will serve as a place to see how things are going, with a collection of finished pieces being displayed together every 20 days or so.
Even if you do not live in the South West of England or even in the UK, you can still help by promoting the project on your website with a simple link to Toms blog and use of the twitter hashtag #3CS, the more people become aware of the project the more likely Tom will get the required 100 turn up for the photoshoot!
