Graphic designer Alvaro Tapia Hidalgo has created an ultra-cool set of graphics that focuses on prominent facial features.

The graphics are brightly colored and a little dark when it comes to the emotion behind the work. The illustrator takes some of pop culture's more infamous characters such as Shelley Duvall's character in The Shining, but instead of merely recreating her image, he has added his own twist.

The dark illustrations are contrasted on the prominent features, such as the subject's nose or hair. In contrast to the dark colors, Alvaro Tapia Hidalgo uses a brighter tone such as fuchsia and bright orange, making it the focal point of his pieces.

The Chilean artist used both digital and manual techniques to produce his unique, stand-out illustrations.
