I couldn’t imagine turning a photo of myself — Andy Warhol-style — into a piece of artwork, but when it comes to immortalizing a photo of a loved one, that’s a whole other story! Me Art is an online site that lets you turn photos of your tot (or any loved one), into custom works of art printed on premium, artist-grade, archival canvas, which is ready for hanging. You can either have a work of art created based on a photo — just take a regular photo of your child and then choose from six artist-inspired styles (prices range from $285 for a 12″x12″ piece, to $665 for a 42″x42″ piece). Alternatively you can create Me Art from your tot’s artwork! The site uses your child’s artwork as the background and then you choose to have your child’s initial or full name printed on top ($75 for an 8’x8′ single block version). The more elaborate options take either 25 images (12″x12″ at $245) or 49 images (18″x18″ at $325) of your tot’s artwork, along with his or her photo and name and turns it into a truly unique collage.
I smell a Mother’s Day splurge….
