It’s on me: A drink for a doodle

December 12, 2010

You get something, I get something.  I’ll buy your therapy.

Dish out your self-portrait. Be creative + crafty or dangerous + sharp.  Be you.  Exaggerate. Pour out some paint, throw in some mud, use your fingers, and make a mess!

Why should you waste time with chunks of crayon, erasers, and glue sticks?

Therapy.  It feels really good.  And who isn’t a tad narcissistic these days?  Check out my mermaid waves. Also, I’ll include a link to your website if you want some attention.

Other than a free therapy session (unleash your inner tarantula or unicorn), I buy you a drink. Since I can’t and won’t take you out for a drink, I’ll send you a drink via snail mail.  (Spend it on cotton swabs or jelly beans if you don’t drink alcohol.)

I get the doodle, and you get the drink.  Win-win-WIN.  There are stipulations, of course.  And I don’t just give drinks away.  Effort is necessary.

Here’s what you get when you give:

Share a self-portrait with your story, and you’ll be savoring a delicious PBR in no time. $3

→Bacon beer in your belly.  Submit a diorama with the story, and you will taste the meat in no time.  Cheers.  $5

→If you are eco-friendly and apply organic materials to the caricature (with story), then salt up the arm, a tequila shot is on the way.  Tequila! $7

→Ambitious and dangerous?  Two drawings with two stories = One delicious dirty martini.  Encourage a friend to play! $9

→Delight your friends.  Collect 5 self-portraits + stories.  Send.  Celebrate with a round of shots.  $21

It’s easy to submit.  Fill out the form.

  1. I’m intigued. I’m a photographer as you can tell from my web site, so my self portrait will be a photo (taken in Paris when Helen and I last visited). Is that permissible? Also, it will be about a week before I can send it.
    Thanks,
    Brian

      Hey Brian,
      Yes, it’s completely permissible. I can’t wait to see your photographic self-portrait! Enjoy the rest of your vacation.

    okay, you have my interest.


  3. Hi Kira,

    This is cute. What about a graphic art self portrait?


  4. Sounds interesting… Where do I send my face?

  5. Mark Says:

    I do not have any self portraits but I have 5 portraits that I have painted in oil and each one has its own interesting story. Would this be something that would qualify for your venture?


  6. I like your style. Anyone who wants to trade for alcohol kicks ass in my book!

    Hello! Just curious… what is this for? Are you collecting works for the hell(love) of it, planning to curate a show, writing a book, social experiment???
    Interesting idea, though.
    Thanks!

      Hi Kristi,
      I’m curious too. I believe it’s a little bit of all of the above. No show in the works, though. I’ve been really blown away by the portraits and stories I’ve received. I want to see where this project goes myself as some truly creative work has already surfaced. I hope you add your own doodle and story to the mix.
      Best,
      Kira

    I’m going to make a night of this with all my alcoholic starving artist friends.

    Kudos to you! What a groovy idea!

    I always thought…if i won the lottery or something like that…I would do something like this!
    how can you afford this?!!!

    I’ve never done a self portrait…but i will now..jus’ for you!

    • kzmuda Says:

      Your website is incredible. Please DO send something. At this point, I’m not receiving hundreds of portraits a week so I’m not broke YET. I may need to re-evaluate the pay-out system at some point, but for now it works extremely well.

      I relish the self-portraits I receive and appreciate the effort it takes to send them to me. For that, I gladly want to buy the artist a cold beverage.
