Old Masters Portraits Recreated With Unorthodox Materials of the Day

This Exists... Because of A Lady


Remember Nina Katchadourian, the artist who was inspired by the disposable materials available on airplanes to recreate old Flemish Portraiture in the lavatory? Well, if you’re looking for a series of portraits in the same spirit, with out all the bathroom time, you need look no further than Suzanne Jongmans‘ series of Old Master Portraits created with packing foam.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
