Watch Some of Your Favorite Literary Characters Gain Faces Through Composite Technology

And I'll Form the Head!

Recently there’s been a composite sketch going around of what 50 Shade’s of Grey‘s Christian Grey would look like. And that’s all well and good, whatever, he kind of looks like Jonathan Taylor Thomas, etc. What we’re interested in this new video and the tumblr that goes along with it, which features the composites of a whole bunch of literary characters. There’s something a tad strange about being confronted with the faces of characters we’ve imagined in our heads for so long when those faces do not belong to famous or soon-to-be-famous actors. That in itself says a lot about what it’s like to consume media in today’s day and age, so we find this project by Brian Joseph Davis to be very intriguing indeed.
