For those who want to go the traditional portrait route, there’s Nobilified — a site that allows you to upload a photo of yourself and have it painted onto a reproduced masterpiece.

“My father was a diplomat and we traveled a lot,” says Chris Jensen, Nobilified’s 24-year-old Vancouver-based owner. “We were in museums constantly, and I always thought it would be cool to have one of those paintings of myself.”

His business took flight in December when the wife of Connor Barwin, a linebacker for the Philadelphia Eagles, ordered one. Barwin then surprised his teammates — including head coach Chip Kelly — with their very own portraits.

Last week, Bruno Mars’ tour manager sent the superstar a painting featuring the singer and his girlfriend Jessica Caban worked into a 1786 portrait by Joseph Wright of Derby.
