Facebook Profile Pictures Transformed into Funny Cartoons

Cartoonist Adam Ellis is one artist you don’t want to be friends with…on Facebook, that is. In his Never Be My Friend series, the Portland-based doodler draws black-and-white caricatures of his friends’ Facebook photos, allowing the prying eyes of the public to see the good, the bad, and the silly. Along with being a fun collection of art — with exaggerated facial expressions and comical embellishments peppering the cartoons — the series also lends a sort of commentary about our social networking habits and how we choose to portray ourselves, whether it be among friends at a party, hugging our pets, or shyly peaking through our fingers. Get to know Mr. Ellis’ friends after the jump, and see the imaginative drawings he whipped up for them.
