MUSE IT OR LOSE IT
Turn yourself into a work of art
Maybe you know a narcissist. Maybe you are a narcissist. Maybe you’ve just always wondered how you’d look staring down at yourself from the living-room wall.
Now you can scratch that artistic-muse itch thanks to Fabulous Noble, a new website for commissioning custom portraits that also happen to be totally cool works of art.
Begin by browsing Fabulous Noble’s gallery of esteemed graphic designers, illustrators and painters--think Lady Gaga’s onetime poster designer and an Italian vector artist who made his name reinterpreting portraits of old Hollywood stars.
Once you’ve found an artist whose work you love, the FN team will send you a form asking some questions about what you want from your bespoke piece. Next, they’ll help you choose a photo of yourself (or your subject) to send as a guide, reach out to the artist on your behalf and serve as an intermediary throughout the entire process.
Pricing begins at about $1,000 (and depends on size, complexity and artist notoriety) and most works take two to four weeks to complete and deliver.
Still, with the holiday season fast approaching, you might want to start thinking now if you want to give the gift of--well--you.
