Website Selfless Portraits lets users submit their Facebook profile photo to be drawn by a complete unknown.

One of the biggest difference between Facebook and Myspace is that while having strangers befriend you on the latter was normal, Facebook is a place for friends only, no strangers allowed. But website Selfless Portraits is breaking down barriers and trying to connect people on Facebook through art.

The art project involves users uploading their Facebook profile onto the website to be hand-drawn by a Facebook user somewhere else in the world. The catch? In order to see your portrait, you have to submit a drawing of a profile picture as well. Profile pictures are randomly assigned, and you are given 48 hours to finish the portrait before it is resubmitted to the pool.
