You may have heard about Young Me Now Me, a fun Ze Frank thing. After discovering the painting of Georges Emile Lebacq below (thanks Patrick) and it’s remarkable likeness to my visage, we at FFFFF.at developed something with a little more dignity and class, it’s called: Impressionist Me, Now Me.

Get out that new digital camera you just unwrapped, do some hunting online and get into it.

Here’s the rules:

1. Search commons.wikimedia.org or other sites for a historical painting, drawing, or early photograph that looks like you. (It’s easier than you think) It doesn’t have to be an impressionist painting, that’s just what we started with.

2. Create a photo of you today where you recreate the pose and scene as best you can. Try to dress the same.

3. Put the two images side by side and upload it into the comments!

Here’s some to get us started:

Jake Dobkin, NYC graffiti photoblogger of Gothamist and Streetsy fame, has decided to share the highly-coveted locations of all the REVS metal sculptures he has photographed in the 5 boroughs.

Says Jake on a recent Flickr post:

“I’ve enjoyed shooting these REVS pieces over the last couple of months. I hope you’ve enjoyed some of the pictures.

Sadly, I’ve run out of known REVS locations– ones that I stumbled across myself, or begged, borrowed, or stole from other REVS enthusiasts. The process of getting the info kind of grosses me out– trading each location like it’s currency. All serious graffiti documentarians are brother artists– giving you one of the locations doesn’t diminish me in any way, whether you’ve taken more or less of these pix than I have. And each of us has enjoyed the help of many other photographers in locating most of the pieces– holding back when someone asks me for the same help feels greedy. These locations– and these pieces– don’t belong to any of us– they belong to the community.”

While coming up short of publishing a data set, map, or geotagging the photos, Jake has offered to give the locations to whoever asks for them. Check out the rest of Jake’s REVS photos to get started, and thanks to all the REVS fans for their dedicated documentation.


UPDATE: In response to comments, Jake has added location data to all of his REVS pictures. You can contact Jake directly for access to the map, which has been set on restricted privacy. Even the lo-fi version of the map is revealing in the patterns of REVS’ work:
