Jason Mecier's Portraits

San Francisco-based portrait artist Jason Mecier does make portraits out of dried beans, but some of his most amazing images are constructed of candy or trash. Most of them are of celebrities.

These two are a little odd, even for Jason. They are my two favorites pieces on his website, along with the candy portrait of Dolly Parton shown on Drawn! and a gorgeous, tiny mosaic image of Condoleeza Rice made of you-know-what.

"Little Timmy"

Patricia Highsmith

Lots more great stuff on his website.

When you said Rice's picture was made of, "you know what," I was really thinking you meant, you know what," LOL...
