Playing with tape:

So I’m sure you have all seen  Bruno Mars‘ video ‘Just the way you are’. (And if you haven’t, check the vid below.) What I liked so much about it was that he was  ‘drawing’ the portraits out of his own cassette tape. I was all impressed with which ever animation artist did it, thinking it looked pretty realistic, but really, it’s impossible right? Wrong!

I cam across some images on pinterest of artist Erika Simmons who does tape art for real (and it turns out she uses other mediums as well).

Here are a few of her tape portraits:

All images are from her website and flickr account.
