Artist draws cartoon portraits over FaceTime

For $50, David Lanham will chat with you over FaceTime and draw a geeky cartoon portrait of what he sees.

Greensboro, N.C., artist David Lanham broke his foot and had some free time to spare. If that was me, I would eat chips and play video games all day. Not Lanham. He had a video chat (using FaceTime on the Apple iPhone 4) with a friend and painted the friend's portrait. This led him to offer his services to those who want a similar portrait done, for a fee of $50.

From what we can see on Lanham's Flickr page, the quality of the drawings is excellent. It's no surprise as the man works at Icon Factory, a design firm that specializes in making icons for software, user interfaces, and more.

Check out more portraits by Lanham in the gallery to the right and on Flickr. If you're keen on getting one done, send him an e-mail--you can find the address on his Web site. Lanham says he can do portraits over iChat or Skype, too, though he does mention on his Twitter page that's he's now booked through the end of the year.
