Artist Rik Reimert has created a series of celebrity portraits with the help of a Rotring Rapidograph. The high tech machine provides a constant flow of ink, allowing Reimert to piece together his images with ease.

Among the Hollywood names featured in Reimert's portfolio are Brad Pitt, Jamie Foxx, Bruce Willis and Benicio Del Toro. And while he does make use of the Rapidograph tool, he keeps his medium simple via basic paper. This notion of simplicity is one that he has come to eagerly covet, "..;isn’t it great to put on a record on your turntable on a Sunday morning and just enjoy the cracks in the music and the great artwork on the cover?"
