PaperFaces iPad project

PaperFaces was an illustration project by designer Michael Rose — hey that’s me! For two years I drew the faces of strangers everyday using only an iPad, a stylus, and the app Paper by WeTransfer.

The following gallery of 886 drawings shows how my technique evolved from faceless gestures into realistic portraits over the years. Most drawings include work in progress screenshots or time-lapse videos showing my process.
