RIGHT ‘ROUND Artist Ben Heine creates portraits of celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe by painstakingly building faces by placing circles one by one. Using a process he has dubbed Digital Circlism, the Brussels-based artist can take between 100 and 180 hours for a single portrait. He says: “Each circle has a different colour, a different size and a different tone. In my opinion, it is a modern artistic expression, a mix between Pop Art and Pointillism.” (Photo: Rex Features via the Telegraph)
One of the more creative art making processes, he draws on the cards, then shoots them with a rifle and a squib (full of red acrylic paint), then goes back into to pull out any art that was lost in red paint or bullet hole.
Probably the most metal art making process I’ve seen in my life.

I have two giant books of these pulp mag covers… they’re so amazing! I can’t help but laugh hysterically at the most sexist, racist, homophobic ridiculous bullshit I’ve seen in my life, THEN dripping machismo craziness on top of it!!!
What a world. *whew. Can’t believe this stuff is only 30-40 years away from us.
