WOULD YOU LIKE TO MAKE MY PORTRAIT?

2014

I proposed to passers-by to paint my portrait. For hours, I sat on the chair of the model in parcs and squares and waited for people to come and draw me.  A sentence said by the various drawers accompanies each portrait.

J'ai proposé à des passants de peindre mon portrait. Pendant des heures, je me suis assise sur la chaise du modèle et j’ai attendu que des personnes se proposent de me dessiner. Une phrase issue des conversations avec les différents dessinateurs accompagne chaque portrait.

Zut, je n’aurais pas dû mettre de l’eau. Ça a coulé !

Crap, I shouldn’t have put water! It flowed!

C’est bien comme ça ou c’est moche ? 

Is it nice like that or is it ugly?
