Relive childhood fun with Mr. Picasso Head

Mr. Picasso Head is a drag-and-drop abstract art creation tool that lets you make your own Picasso-like masterpieces.

Fine art and kitsch have a long history of being intertwined ever since Duchamp's urinal made a splash in the art scene. In the same spirit is Mr. Picasso Head, a drag-and-drop abstract art creation tool that lets you make your own Picasso-like masterpieces.

You control all the pieces of the face and can choose from a variety of eyes, ears, noses and hairstyles. There are some simple scale and rotation tools which let you adjust the size of facial features and which way they should be pointing. You can also change the coloring of each piece using a large color palette.

There's only one way to export your work, and that's by e-mail. It's saved in a gallery along with other people's Mr. Picasso Heads. Unfortunately the gallery is entirely in Flash, so there's no way to right-click and Save-as. There also are no thumbnails. But I'm just picking nits. It's meant to be simple fun and that's what it is.
