Everyone's already aware of their flaws, so getting a caricature done is almost pointlessly predicta -- holy god -- how many chins?? Be even further surprised, with Draw Your Face Off
From a Littleton-based artist who goes by the one-name moniker Ernie (he's a Sesame Street fan), DYFO remotely sketches cartoonish portraits of "anything with a face" (including pets!) with a pulp/ '50s-'60s art vibe, which he then "jacks" by incorporating super-random, often-funny elements, which are never actual jacks, because there's no one left alive who remembers how to play them. Here's how it works: email him a photo of yourself, a friend, or a man's best friend, and he'll ink your likeness (and embed something he sees in the image, or just a random artistic choice that he thinks "will look sweet"), color and varnish it to give you "a nice gold tone", frame it in sturdy black wood, and within two weeks, mail you the 4''x6'' piece "ready to hang", also the text that Brooks sent Red after a long day bagging groceries. Previous works (all posted up on the site) include a tatted-up old-school dude drawn like "a skeleton was wearing a mask of his face", a man-turned-robot with a bald head replaced by a transparent dome and crazy mechanical octopus arms, and a guy given a colorful polka dot background, a bird on his shoulder, and a nest of eggs atop his mop, though who doesn't always have an omelet on the brain?
And before you ask, Ernie's got an explicit "no suggestions" policy (he "works better alone") to ensure high quality even in the face of your...face. Good lord.
