NEW: Prints of this artwork now available!

Marilyn's portrait made with thousands of circles on a black background. It took me almost one week of intense work...

I love Marilyn, I think she was one of the most sensual women in the world. Some details HERE.

And if you're interested, here is a new interview I gave for ToonPool, speaking about digital circlism...

What more can I say with out appearing to be a total fanboy? I love Marilyn too and feel that a lot of art work based on her likeness is cashing in but this is a really original, and iconic, take on a icon.

I lov the fact that you have made her lips red in an otherwise monochormatic piece...very stunning.

My only slight query is her chin and the side of her face running up to just below her eye on the right and just above her eye on the left, it looks to me like she's wearing a mask. Not being an expert on this type of art I'm guessing that's the only way you could give her face depth?

Otherwise a faultless piece of work as I hope my star rating reflects.
What do you think?

I am usually no fan of pointilism or circlism at that, but this one is really epic.The likeness as well of your other works visible in the preview is brilliant

This is incredible! I love the red lips being the only color-- but since this is a critique, I think a little yellow in the hair would have helped to balance the work a little more. (Sorry sometimes all I can see is her lips!) Although other than that, it's a wonderful likeness and I love the composition (of course not to mention the style)!
