I like the cartoony contributor profile pictures in the New Yorker. link. Who makes these? How are they made and is there a web site where you can make your own?

Best answer: Stan Chow - It looks to be all original vector illustration work done in illustrator. I would assume he has some shapes and elements that he re-uses, but it's all done from scratch.

Not an answer, but if you have any kind of craftiness at all, you might try cross-stitching a portrait based on the templates here. Cross stitch doesn't take a lot of practice and has low entry costs. Also, I've made four portraits so far and they're surprisingly recognizable!
