"Ernie" is the one-person-operation behind Draw Your Face Off -- a website where you can order original, inked portraits.
Under the FAQ, the last question goes:
Q: Can I make a suggestion for my drawing?
A: Nope. I can read your mind. Actually I can't, but I work better alone.
As a one-person-operation team myself (at jessINK), I know how "doing everything oneself" (artistically) allows for 100% undiluted focus, passion, and enthusiasm.
Ernie's portraits are 100% the real deal -- ink to paper (I love ink!), colored, varnished, AND framed.
A great gift for yourself or a friend -- $34 for U.S.-based customers -- about the cost of a nice dinner out. An original portrait / piece of real art lasts way longer than one nice dinner, in terms of tangibility ;)

Couple of quotes/links to do with portraiture:
1) "Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter." ~ Oscar Wilde
