Reconizable faces with unconventioanl materials

When I show these in class, it always gets a great response from the students so I thought I would share some of them on the blog too. Who says Master Studies are dead?  My favorite part is the use of unconventional materials and how it can add a whole new dimension to a familiar image that is loaded with comments on consumerism and consumption.
