3D Portraits Made Out of Regular Screw Nails

Today I discovered the interesting work of the sculptor & painter Andrew Myers. He creates some really interesting sculptures, but the most fascinating is when he uses regular everyday screw nails to create interesting portraits that literally come out their two dimensional frames.

After drawing his portraits on regular plywood, Andrew creates thousands of pre-screwed holes by hand covering the entire surface of the portrait. Andrew, then, drives the screw nails through the holes at varying depths to create a very cool 3D effect. Andrew does not use any computer software to pre-measure the number of nails or their desired depths, but rather relies on his artistic feel and instinct as he still considers his work to be sculpture-like.

Take a look at the below photos and I hope you get amazed as I was when I first saw them.
