Amazing Portraits Made with Screws by Andrew Myers California based artist, created some very unique portraits made using thousands of screws. Each portrait is made up out of about 8,000 to 10,000 individual screws, carefully placed into a sheet of plywood. Andrew Myers creates portraits using screws, which also allows the artist to get a “feel” of 3D into the work. The artist starts off with a plywood panel and covers it with pages of a phonebook (pages from the subject’s local area!) and then move.
