  1. Veeeery Interesting, I enjoy Steven Paul Jobs the most I think. We’ll see where this takes me next…

  2. Those are GREAT! What awesome work. I particularly love 16, 20, and 24.

    That’s something I’d really love to learn how to do–any tutorials you’d recommend?

  3. Brilliant selection! Love 2, 7 & 8. Guess I’d have fun trying to figure out how emulate this effect, but I’d rather learn the proper way… Appreciate a tut recommedation. Cheers!

  4. Lovely. But the Michael Jackson one is just straight text with an alpha picture – just brights and darks.

    Bit of a cop-out, really. I could very easily do that with notepad and a photo? Not really worthy of being here with all these other great examples.

  5. this is very interesting to me. This has given me a great idea to do my own, Very detailed and sorry butt that micheal jackson one wuz the one that turned mr off sorry, butt the rest are great!

  6. I love the idea of typographic portraits. We can use this in so many art works for schools.Laser cartridges for office printers
