“Good artists copy; great artists steal.” —Pablo Picasso (and Steve Jobs)

family-portrait-artists.gifThis dude named Karl has come up with a super-simple process that lets anyone, even beginners, turn photographs of people into beautiful illustrations (for posters, prints, or whatever.)

Julian Opie’s portraiture style is unmistakable, so it’s unlikely you can fool anyone into believing you thought this one up yourself. We suggest you just admit that you copied the idea from us here at PhotoJojo, who in turn copied it from Karl, who was inspired by Julian Opie to make his own copy. Whew! How’s that for post-modern?
