Ghost in the Machine by Iri5

We’ve blogged about Erica Iris Simmons, aka Iri5, before but I just saw a post about her recent pieces on DudeCraft and have gotten lost looking at her incredible work for the past hour! She has been creating portraits of film stars from film, classic composers from sheet music, pinups from wine bottle labels, and recently created an ode to Mandelbrot out of a copy of his Fractal Geometry of Nature. Below are a few in-process shots of the Audrey Hepburn portrait. Be sure to check out her Iri5 Flickr stream for recent work that will be shown in an upcoming show in Princeton, NJ!
