I simply could not pass on this iconic pop culture moment. Stills from last week's testimony that the co-founder, chairman and CEO of Facebook gave to Congress were the source of a lot of creative online puns.
The premise this week will be for us to use the same image in creating portraits of Mark. I generally avoid sharing the same image with more than one painter because it allows for comparisons and also removes the original aspect of the creation. But in this case using the exact same image to create different versions of the portrait will precisely be the conceptual basis of the assignment: to allow comparisons and serialize a single snapshot.
I chose the quote of the week based on this assignment.
