Cartoonist Gabrielle Bell is doing watercolor portraits over Skype. They’re tiny and amazing, and $35 I think. This might be the best possible use for Skype, although the scientific research isn’t in yet.
What a great idea. I love it when cartoonists use new technology to update old ways of making dough — painting portraits is almost as old as painting itself, but add the Skype element and you’ve got something new. I’m reminded of when Ray Fenwick adopted an “arts grant” model for drawing in his sketchbook.
