Recently I discovered a site that offers you an unusual opportunity: to have your likeness drawn as a Simpsons character. You send them a photo, and the artist renders your likeness as a yellow cartoon figure, the way Matt Groening might draw you.
It’s 5 bucks. How could I pass that up? Here is the result:
How awesome is that?
(Yeah, I used an 11-year-old picture. What of it?)
I have decided to make this my avatar on the blog and on the Twitter. It’s now a permanent fixture on the sidebar on the right.
If you’re interested in how to do this yourself, simply go here. It’s at “fiverr.com” which is a site that allows you to buy all kinds of stuff for five bucks. I think several artists do the same thing, but I was pleased with mine, so I recommend the artist at the link.
If anyone else gets one, please share it in comments.
