David Meanix

I thought I'd kick off this semester's posts by pointing out an artist that I thought had some really interesting pieces (not drawings in this particular case but it may be inspiration). In my opinion, the most interesting works are the human mosaic works. He takes photos of a person's face from many different angles, cuts up those photos, and arranges them on a papier mache mask to form mosaic tile like versions of a person. It is a pretty interesting effect. If you've ever seen the HBO series Six Feet Under, Meanix was had some of these human mosaic pieces commissioned for use in the final two seasons.

You can find the works in the art tab linked to from his home page.
