    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.

  • Great work – I would never has that kind of time. I did enjoy viewing…

  • Inspired , am checking out the ” how to do it ” links . hope would be able to something nice

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

  • 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’m just typography lover and always appretiate these collection. Although I’ve seen many of these before, some are new to me. Thanks.

    If you don’t mind. I’d like to show you my typo-portrait as well. If you’re interested, heres se link of my Scarlett Johansson (if you go into gallery you’ll find also Yvonne Strahovski portrait)

  • WOW!!!!! This collection is great and I like it so much!!! My favourute “too much pressure”.

  • Blox

    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.

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

  • Amazing. I love daft punk and typography. A perfect combination!

  • WOW, very inspiring!

  • wow awesome collection 🙂

    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.

  • This is a truly magnificent showcase. I’ve never tried typography design but I think I will now… 😉

  • Very beautiful! I love the Michael Jordan typograhic poster.
