Artist Wes Naman, has attempted to do just that. In his various "Scotch Tape Series," Wes has taken something that many may have dabbled with as children, to an extreme form of expressionism.
Hilarious and hideous in the same instant, these elaborate portraits make you giggle as much as they churn the stomach. Obviously one with an eye for the grotesque, his "Valentines Day," series caused somewhat of an emotional response by the viewer. A few of my favorite from the red and white series below.
Make sure and flip through the "Scoth Tape Series," and let me know which one is your favorite (or least favorite for that matter).
