Florida-based artist Derek Gores has an impressive series of collages made entirely out of recycled material.

By using recycled magazines, labels and other material, he creates unique portraits of people. Interestingly, the pieces don't have a rustic junkyard appearance. Instead, his artwork is colorful and hardly looks like it was made out of recycled material. More of his amazing work can be viewed on his personal website.
