Here’s something we should all totally get behind: strangers drawing strangers Facebook profile pictures. Called Selfless Portraits, it’s an incredible art project that allows random people to draw other random people’s profile pic and collects them all in a gallery of side-by-side portraits. Some of them are wonderful. Others are hilarious. All of them are awesome.
Selfless Portraits is sort of reminiscent of the hilarious Facebook prank where you copied random people’s profile pictures but obviously handled with a lot more care. It’s nice to be somebody’s art subject (maybe creepy too but whatever!). And plus, some of these pictures are really impressive! It’s nice to see different art styles and even when the picture is godawful, they usually have some sort of redeeming comical quality to them (reward effort and time!).
