Day 26 – 30 Day Self Portrait Challenge – Tor Tor Tor

Today’s Munich Artists 30 day Self Portrait theme is TOR.  We have only four days left in this year’s 30-day self-portrait challenge.  If you want to follow along for the last few days, please check out our challenge page.

Munich Artists Self Portrait Challenge Day Day 25 – Subways

Subway, Tube, Underground. Whatever you call it, we want you to think about the subway today as you create your self portrait. If you don’t live near a subway, you can go to a subway restaurant like Jeffrey Ely or take a ride in a car or taxi.  We have only five days left in our challenge. If you would like to play along, the themes are located here.

Day 13 and Munich Artists are into Music Big Time.

Day 13 and Munich Artists dug deep into their treasure troves and dusted off instruments, records and even some cassette tapes.  If you want to follow along with our 30 day photo self portrait challenge, you can find the list here. 

Today the weather is beautiful outside. If you want to take a little excursion, go GEMA’s office in Haidhausen and take a selfie with enormous instrumental sculptures in their courtyard outside.  I’ve never been inside so I don’t know if they have sculptures inside.   Directions are below our music photo gallery.

Gema where are you?  In Munich, GEMA’s instrumental sculptures are located here.  Rosenheimer Str. 11, 81667 München. It is behind the Gasteig heading into Haidhausen.  There are a few sculptures so go have fun snapping photos.

Day 11 and We are Looking for Chairs – My Chair and Me is the Theme.

We are heading towards the midpoint of our challenge and the pressure is on to finish.  Munich Artists are not breaking a sweat and sent in lots of photos today of themselves with chairs.  If you want to join in on the fun, follow the themes on our 30 day self portrait challenge page.   Look forward to hearing about your work on our Facebook page.

Day 9 String – Finding a Nicer Way to Say With String

Sunday morning and I need to do a self portrait with string. I decided to focus on my weakness. I’m not so good at telling people to *uck off so I played with string to see if I could make it more palatable.

Here are a few more examples of how other Munich Artists, explored the theme of string and self portraits.

Day 5 – 30 day Munich Artists Self Portrait photo challenge – Phew that is a long name abbreviated it would be MASPPC

My Titles are getting longer and longer.  Today is day 5 of the Munich artists self portrait photo challenge.  The theme for today is lines.  I don’t think you need an explanation for lines – It’s very straight forward.  Yes, it is going to be that kind of day so settle down and start snapping some photos. Here are a few examples of what Munich Artists have been sending in to me today.   They get to send photos to me until 1200 so I will be adding a few more after lunch.  If you are an artist, feel free to join in on the fun.  Artists who finish the 30 days will get a special treat. Maybe a beer at the beergarden after the summer holidays? If you want to share your images, it is best to join our closed group on Facebook.   If I don’t know you, please be aware that I will share images on the website, on Instagram and on Facebook. Also, if I don’t know you, send me a message before trying to join or ask a Munich Artist already in the group to add you.  We do this to keep spammers out of the group.  Also,  If you don’t want images shared, please let me know. Not everyone loves the internet as much as I do and I want to respect your artwork as much as possible.   Here is a link to day 1, 2, 3, 4.  From today onwards I will give you the links to a couple of days before unless you want a list of numbers at the end of each post.  That could be kind of funny. The link to all of the themes for the challenge can be found here.

Munich Artists Drawing Challenge Day 5 – Couple

The theme for today’s drawing is couple. When I went to the computer this morning to create the photo display for the day, Angela Josupeit’s image was already in my inbox so I decided to use it for day 5 and share it on instagram.
