A fan of startups, entrepreneurship, getting things done faster, penning the occasional blog post, taking photos, designing, listening to good music and making lurrrve.

    Via CoolHunting:

    After years of sketching his colleagues during weekly work meetings, Melbourne-based graphic designer began getting requests from friends to provide them with a portrait. Opening up his skill set to a worldwide audience Hammond has just launched One Minute Portraits, a site where he creates portraits in just one minute. Anyone can email him a photo of themself, check out the portrait and then choose to buy the original.”

    In all honesty, the sketches creep me out and are definitely not ones I’d consider using as my avatar on TNW nor on any of the many social network sites. So I’m hoping you our dear readers might be able to share details of any designers or websites that do offer similar services and maybe with a more friendly style? Possibly a caricaturist of some sort?
