Art in 60 seconds for $1!?!?!?!!?

I recently stumbled upon this really cool business venture of a blog called Sketch-It. It's compromised of a handful of artists, all with unique styles. Send them a photo or an idea, they say, and they'll sketch it in 60 seconds for $1. Curiousity got the best of me and so I decided to submit a photo I had taken of my two boys. I zapped them a dollar via PayPal and uploaded my photo for them to use as a reference for the drawing. A few hours later I checked back on the site and there it was - a sketch of my two boys! Here is a photo of the original and the final sketch. Try it out! You never know which artist will tackle your submission, so that's half the excitement!
