PostHeaderIcon Turn yourself into a cartoon with Fiverr

I’m guessing that many of you have heard of Fiverr. This is an online marketplace where you can have almost anything done for $5. People are offering to proofread/edit documents, type transcripts, and more. I’m a bit of a fan of online avatars, and I recently heard about someone on Fiverr who would draw you as a Simpson’s character. I thought it looked very nice, but I don’t really watch the Simpson’s, so it got me thinking about what other cartoons might be available. I found someone who would draw a character (no particular style) and someone who would draw a Tim Burton style character.

I ended up deciding on someone who would draw you as a LEGO character. I did one for each of my kids and they look fantastic!

The Guardian (UK) has a cool video recreating Usain Bolt’s gold medal winning run in the 100m race. The best part is is that it is done all in LEGO!
