Et·som·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.
There are a lot of talented portrait artists on Etsy. With a few noted exceptions, however, these are not them. As usual, I’m hardest on the felters (because it’s so much funnier when a bad portrait is in 3 dimensions). Today’s search turned up as many adorable, funny, unexpected portraits as it did tragic, hilarious, inept ones.
