Free Crappy Portraits (.com)

Have any of you ever heard of A friend of mine showed it to me and I immediately knew I just had to do it.

But wait. What is this exactly? Well. Here is the info on their page:

"Send any picture you want immortalized by one of our terrible artists. If you can't decide, send us a couple to choose from. All we ask is that you please try to keep the overall file size under 5 megabytes.

You don't have to, but we highly recommend that you tell us something about you or whoever else is in the photo. It can be a list of your favorite cheeses, a tale about the ever-elusive Sasquatch, or a haiku about roller disco — we aren't picky. Just keep in mind that you'll probably get a better portrait if you tell us a bit about yourself!"

So here is what yours truly said:

"My name is Alex though I've always wished it was Penelope. I love glittery wrapping paper, crunchy grapes, shoulder blades and collar bones, wet paper, pay checks, and pie. I believe in happy endings and I wish I was Beyonce at least twice a day."

And this is the picture I submitted with it....

Emma Marie Photography
