On August 12th, 2006, I embarked upon a one-year journey of self-discovery. One self-portrait, every day, for an entire year. I called that journey "365 Days." Along the way, not only did I learn a lot about myself as an artist and a man, but I inspired thousands of people around the world to attempt the same journey.
Since that time, I have been lucky enough to observe countless other projects based on mine. I have been told by countless other artists, professional and amateur, how much I changed their lives. And through this journey, my life was forever changed as well.
There have been many 365 Day journeys. This is the very first. This is my story. This is 365 Days.
