It is not uncommon to see people pay tribute to some of their favorite celebrity in a unique way, yet Elliot Frantz's choice of medium is pretty impressive. He has turned to cardboard to portray the likeness of Audrey Hepburn, Bob Marley and Humphrey Bogart as well as the 1940s movie poster for 'This Gun for Hire.' What makes this so intriguing is the fact that Elliot Frantz didn't paint on the cardboard, instead he carved into it.

Based in Rancho Cucamonga, California, Elliot Frantz essentially cuts out the top bits of the cardboard in order to use the corrugated midsection as the shadowy detail for each portrait. Currently working on commissions for the holiday season, Elliot Frantz's work has enchanted quite a few people.
