Melbourne-based graphic designer Benjamin Hammond just launched a site called One Minute Portraits, where the artist draws quick portraits in less than a minute. It works like this: email a photo of yourself, Hammond creates the portrait, and you can choose to buy the original if you like it. (OR pick up a few drawing lessons and do-it-yourself.)
"I chose one minute because it's roughly how long I take to draw a face," says Hammond, "Saying that, if I'm really into drawing a face and my minute's up, I may just keep going until it's done. But normally it shouldn't take more than a minute."
Fun concept. Examples below, check out more of Hammond's portraits here.
