the portrait party

February 22, 2008

It’s a proud day in the Hughes household because Rama’s in the press! His portrait project, The Portrait Party, has been featured in the April 2008 issue of The Artist’s Magazine. Check it out. You may even find portraits of and by a certain wife.

What makes The Portrait Party so amazing, I think, is how Rama’s love of drawing shines through. He doesn’t ask you to be brilliant, he just asks you to create. His enthusiasm is contagious and encouraging, and as a result, you have people who never thought they could draw churning out a dozen portraits in a week. It’s so cool.

We’re hosting our first real, live portrait party with a handful of friends next week, and I can’t wait.

  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
