Taking street portraits and caricatures to a whole new level, Benjamin Hammond has created a website that allows people to commission quick and unique portraits. Inspired by a demand from peers for his quirky art renditions, the Melbourne-based artist decided to take his talent to the public.

Succinctly titled ‘One Minute Portraits,’ Benjamin Hammond’s website invites anyone and everyone to submit a photo of themselves, and have those photos turned into a quick one-minute sketch. If the customer is happy, he or she can purchase the original. Otherwise, the online version is still theirs for free. Stats for One Minute Portraits Trending: Older & Chilly
