“Make An Artist A Millionaire” – self-portrait with a negotiable instrument

The first phase (which I assumed would be the only one) of “Make an Artist a Millionaire” involved soliciting a donation of $1 from one million people. As with the symbolism of the million dollars, the single dollar seemed to me a symbol, a vote of confidence in the worthiness of my cause. Ultimately it is about money only as a tool to buy time, and I figured that the transition in donors’ minds would be easy: “of course artists should use their time only to make art, and my donation of an almost zero amount of money will buy back time for this artist.”

$1 from one million people, people.
