Yesterday at Figment, a participatory arts event on Governor’s island in New York City, Nick Normal and I met 0H10M1ke, who draws 1 minute portraits of strangers on matchbooks and hands them out. I thought it was such a sweet idea! He’s been doing it for a long time; Nick and I got portraits numbered 8012 and 8013, respectively. He also has an interesting Flickr photostream.
