Photographer/graphic designer Tarik Mikou is a highly sought after artist, and I can see why. The simple yet captivating adjustments he has made to these iconic images caught my eye the instant I saw them.

The black and white photos with splashes of well-placed color feature some of greatest entertainers ever including Audrey Hepburn, Shirley Temple and Marilyn Monroe. Legendary directors like Woody Allen and Alfred Hitchcock make appearances as well.

Mikou's carefree but calculated creations have an almost Warhol type feel. If he keeps it up, he may become an icon worthy of photographing himself.
