American mosaic artist Jason Mecier has created 3-D portraits of famous people using everyday items and trash such as margarine tubs, pens, pink toys, discarded cell phones and Coca-Cola bottles.
Among the people who have gotten a makeover from Mecier are Mariah Carey, Tiger Woods, Chris Rock, RuPaul and the late Anna Nicole Smith.
