“Eclectic and brilliant, and we’re
struggling to think of a better way to
show a little individuality online.”

Happens When You Ask A Stranger To
Draw Your Facebook Photo.”

little closer together”
“Turning Facebook into a
Showcase of Personal Expression.”
“An Incredible Art Project.
Some of the portraits are wonderful.
Others are hilarious.
All of them are awesome.”
“Takes advantage of Facebook’s 1 billion
user audience to bring together random
people in a raw, almost vulnerable way.”

HOW IT WORKS

Upload your profile picture to be hand drawn by a Facebook user somewhere in the world. To receive
the finished portrait, you must complete and upload a drawing of a randomly-assigned person’s profile picture.

Draw as many people as you like. Your work will be added to the Gallery and your My Portraits page.
