Celebrities as circles

Portraits of famous folk can get a little bit dull. Their over-exposed faces displaying their over-used expressions inspire nothing more than a shoulder shrug.

But thanks to the intimidatingly brilliant possibilities offered up by computers, digital innovation has given us a bright light at the end of the tunnel.

The rather annoyingly talented Ben Heine developed these striking images by recreating well-known figures with just circles and nothing else. Whether it was a drunken dare or just a personal obsession with circles we don't know, but we're pleased to admire the results either way.

It took Ben nine days of intense work to create the first portrait of Eminem so thank him if you can.
