Montreal-based artist Beth Frey knows that, deep down, a lot of people would like to be as famous as Andy Warhol. So she started a business through her Etsy shop offering a personalized drawing of you, a unicorn, and Andy. Why a unicorn?

‘You do it because of Warhol. Warhol made you do it’ says Frey. ‘So you ride the unicorn of success with Andy, even though he’s already bored of you’. OK. If you want your very own portrait, all you have to do is send in a photo of yourself here and cite your special requests: colour, background, custom celebrity ‘sandwiches’ (for an additional fee). Voila! And if you don’t want to be touched by Andy Warhol but have Justin Bieber mounted on your steed instead, then Frey offers that too.
