You write famous novels on typewriters, not make portraits. Oh wait, you make portraits now, too? Like some sort of analog ASCII art, London-based Keira Rathbone has figured out a way to manipulate a typewriter to create these very well-constructed portaits and "drawings." Super Impressive.

Portraits Made from Thousands of Tiny Objects

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 23, 2013
London-based artist Joe Black's portrait of Barack Obama uses thousands of black and white toy soldiers. His other portraits use everything from small toys and chess pieces to nuts and bolts depending on the subject and the message he is trying to portray. The toy soldiers in the Obama piece, titled Shoot to Kill, "could indicate the ethos of good and evil, or right and wrong that is embedded in America's dealings with Eastern nations."

Jake Chapman of the famed Chapman Brothers notes of James' work,"Like all the best art, Nathan James’ new paintings challenge the idea that beauty is a universal term."
