The Lone Cupcake Survey: Is This the End or Just The Beginning?

Is it the last gasp of artistic desperation? Drawing’s ironic  abasement before the god of photography? Or just  way to make a little money? Houston artist Whitney Riley is starting a “stay at home mommy business”- building on the popularity of her hand-sketched pet portraits, she’s restyled herself as “The Lone Cupcake-Personal Artist” and is offering to translate photos of friends, family, dogs, babies, etc. into tightly-rendered pencil sketches (by an “actual artist”!) at $100 a pop. The nascent enterprise is in the market research phase right now- take the online survey for a chance to win a free sketch of your own!
