Arnaud Prinstet, with this self-portrait.

"Arnaud Prinstet's self-portrait was also intriguing. A more laborious version of this much-viewed video, Prinstet paints a portrait of himself every day, allowing his technique and style to change over time, even if he doesn't much, but always employing the same oranges, reds and yellows. As it goes, he's gotten more childlike over recent drawings, thanks to those big eyes and lack of definition -- like "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" meets "The Picture of Dorian Gray." "
