Artist Ashish Patel is able to create these tiny celebrity portraits in stunning detail, despite the minuscule size of his medium.
With some of his work measuring no bigger than a nickel, Patel is able to display his art on mere centimeters of space and capture the finest of detail in his tiny celebrity portraits. Celebrities like Robin Williams, Marilyn Monroe, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna are all drawn to a level that almost appears photographic in its quality and care.
To achieve these miniature results, Patel must work with precision tools and a great detail of patience. Super-fine pencil tips are used to scratch and sketch notable figures that can are posed as if sitting on a real life eraser, on top of a pencil, or in the case of Abraham Lincoln, posing next to his portrait on a penny.
