Our overlords at the Denver Egotist got a little gift in the mail from a new friend in town. His name's Ernie, and he's created a new site: Draw Your Face Off. It works like this. You submit a picture of yourself and he does an original illustration (with some secret Ernie sauce) that comes back to you as a framed piece you can hang on the wall. He even sent us a picture of what he thinks they look like (it is flattering, yes), along with the note below. At $34, it's a pretty sweet deal.
Ernie's an interesting guy, as his interesting letter interestingly shows:
Hello Denver Egotist,
My name is Ernie and we seem to have a lot in common. The first is you run a sweet website…and I like to look at pictures. Number 2, I have a website also. It’s called www.drawyourfaceoff.com. Basically, people upload their picture or a pic of someone they want drawn and I draw it. Only thing is I add awesomeness to it, cause let’s face it, you could be boring…looking. Don’t worry, it’ll look sweet and awesome! Anyway, I drew this one for you. Even though I don’t know what you look like I’m pretty sure you’re a dude, who must wear a headband to keep that big ol’ brain inside your skull. Or maybe you just have a wicked backhand. Also if you were wondering, your shiny teeth aren’t tin foil…that’s platinum. Sweet! I figured you could probably afford it. Hope you like it. Thanks.
