With the tremendous outpouring of support for my Kickstarter campaign I have been able to turn The Unselfie Project into a side business. I have included all of the existing pledge levels in the Unselfie Project shop and I plan to add more options in the near future. (i.e. Couples and Family portraits)
As an illustrator I have always been fascinated by old portraits; the original avatars. I believe that the selfie has really made the special, unspecial. I want people to see the value in representing themselves in an artistic way that makes a statement about who they are as individuals. I want to take the portrait back and get rid of as many lame selfies as possible.
With your support, my goal is to create as many original, illustrated avatar portraits as possible. Once the illustrations are completed, and with your permission, I plan on showcasing them online as part of the Unselfie Project Gallery for everyone to enjoy. I love drawing people. It will be a personal challenge to draw so many different faces.
I launched The Unselfie Project with several goals in mind. To un-suck the avatar, to bring back the creativity and artistry of portraits but most of all to have fun making something unique for you! I have created a range of Unselfies from black and white all the way to traditional watercolor. I even created a few POWER-UP levels to keep it fun and interesting. Check out the sample gallery below to see some examples of my work!
Please keep in mind that an Unselfie would be an awesome gift. A little something for someone special, a portrait of your kids or even a keepsake of your favorite pet! You can request children or pet portraits at any of the Unselfie levels. Zombie kittens and kids with sweet staches!
Thank you for your support in helping me take back the portrait!

Below, you can check out additional samples of Unselfies that I have created. I take a lot of pride in being able to capture a likeness. If you supply me with a great photo you can expect a great illustration!
