David Yow presents a series of new portraits called Get Faced. The concept for this project is quite fascinating: for a cost of $100-$200 you send him a photo that he uses as what he describes on his site as “a catalyst, a seed, an inspiration for a flurry of interpretive and creative blossoming.”

These are David Yow’s favorite creations from this project so far. These odd and fascinating portraits are certainly different and will appeal to a niche audience, including his fans from the 90s.

It is hard to say where this artist's inspiration stems from, although he must be doing something right as the portraits caught my attention as soon as I caught my first glance. Stats for Interpretative Facial Portraits Trending: Older & Average
