Twitter users everywhere should take a page out of Greg Burney's playbook in order to garner much-deserved attention and gain significantly more followers in a short period of time.

Illustrator Greg Burney enticed new followers by promising a unique artistic interpretation of their profile picture over a span of two weeks. His offer was so good that he had to cap off these free drawings at 3,000 followers.

Based in Britain, Greg Burney has named his Twitter art project #drawmyfollowers. He tweets, "I aim to complete this as soon as possible and—once finished—hope it will provide me with some opportunities in the world of social media. Perhaps even career opportunities in social media, graphic design or branding, who knows." Stats for Profile Picture Illustrations Trending: Older & Chilly
