The Selfie is the latest pop culture fad and it has taken many forms, including Tumblr selfies like this new crowdsourced commission series from Pictoplasma. The project calls for artists from all over to submit a piece of artwork depicting a character taking a selfie of themselves.

Submissions include paintings, felt dolls, photos in costume and even one person taking a selfie of paper bag mask. The designs are often unusual and bizarre, but often also endearing and humorous. The Character Selfie Tumblr project is a bid to look at what is behind the seemingly narcissistic craze of self-photography, while celebrating their own unique tradition of character art. These odd and appealing Tumblr selfies are great food for thought and a thoughtful twist on a current fad.
