Having exhausted my iPhone 4 friend pool with the requisite HEY-check-out-my-office/bedroom FaceTime calls, I basically haven't used the feature at all in weeks. Dave Lanham, an artist who's doing caricatures over FaceTime for $50, will be my next call.


Lanham is a designer at Icon Factory, the company behind Twitterific and other fine software, and for $50 he will dial you up over FaceTime and draw you a Twitter avatar you can be proud of. Here's a quick look at his vector drawing process:

This Flickr gallery shows Lanham's first few FaceTime faces, though I'm sure he'll be inundated with more nerdy mugs than a Think Geek newsletter soon enough, so you'll have to act fast to see yourself in all your vector glory. You can get in touch on Twitter or Dave's personal site. [Dave Lanham via Wired]

"I basically haven't used the feature at all in weeks"

Thus proving what I've said about the iphone 4, more or less from the beginning. That stupid video chat feature was what everyone demanded...and you know what? It was done so poorly that nobody is using it...the NEED to be on an iphone 4 and the NEED to be on wifi - it just makes no sense.

That having been said, I'm not surprised by a facetime caricaturist, nor will I be stunned as facetime sex lines start opening their doors.
