You can now share your selfie and have random strangers use it to draw your portrait.

For anyone who enjoyed those couple months when we all played "Draw Something," but you gave it up because there wasn't enough of a narcissism component, you're going to want to download the French Girls app real fast.
He does look a little surprised.
Instead of "Draw Something," this app is basically, "Draw Me." Hence the play on the internet-beloved Titanic quote, "Draw me like one of your French girls."
Their logline is simple: "Take Selfies. Get Drawings." French Girls explains itself as the "award-winning app where strangers anonymously draw portraits based on 'selfies' others have posted." Based on these samples posted to Imgur this morning, the artist is clearly given a lot of editorial freedom to be hilarious.
It's all there in the subtext.
Prescient, given the recent news.
Challenge not accepted.
I just tried it out and am waiting impatiently for someone to draw me. I even posed and everything.
I'll be sure to share the results as soon as I'm turned into art.
I also learned while looking for someone to draw that the average user looks to be about eleven years old. Be forewarned.
