A new post on Springwise.com discusses another company that are dedicated to creating custom-made avatars. This creative cottage industry example was recently spotted in the UK.
Bless This Chick creates mini-portraits that illustrate someone’s online or offline identity. Customers send Bless This Check details of the person to be illustrated, pay by PayPal, and receive a hand-drawn portrait by email a few days later.
What are they for? Consumers can stick their chick on their personal website or MySpace page, add it to their email signature, or use it as an avatar on blogs or chatrooms. Bless this Chick also creates a webpage for customers, where they can order personalized products such as t-shirts and underwear.
