    These are…beautiful!

    Talented, gifted individuals.

    I always hated that I was never artistic – not visually anyway. I’m still having difficulty with the stick man.

    Congratulations, this is wonderful work!

    Those are amazing. The use of color on some of them is brilliant.

    I love them, and feel intimidated by them at the same time. I’ve started my own typographic portrait series, and though I had a piece up on Abduzeedo once, I still feel I have a lonnnnnng way to go.

    Inspiring and intimidating.

    Amazing collection, very inspiring… my favourite is “What Lies Within”

  12. January 21, 2011

    Fantastic selection, my favourite is ‘A man of his word’, I cant believe the designer who created it spent over 150 hours doing it. That’s dedication.

    I love the way the different typefaces have been used to good effect with Ghandi and Mother theresa, for once a script type works well. The way that colour has been used sensitively in many of the images also adds to the beauty.

  24. January 26, 2011

    These are truly amazing, so detailed and almost lifelike. I kinda want to make a self-portrait now. Thanks for sharing!

    Those are fantastic and outstanding portraits. I have nothing to say, I’m just dazed. These are the best typographic portraits I’ve ever seen. Mostly I liked Nely Furtado, Mr. Marley, Jordan, Cobain, Make yourself amazing… and the las one portraits. Now I’m inspired and going to do something.

  29. March 28, 2011
