file this under “why didn’t i think of that!?

especially since i spent the better part

of a couple years obsessively collecting

paint chip color samples and punching holes out of them

{to make cards & stuff}

 

artist peter combe

has taken it to a whole other level!

 

in his 3D series ~ he uses 2,500-5,000 circles

& extends them from the surface at a 45°angle

which creates an optic effect…

{very cool}

The Portrait Series

is made of about 5,000 punched circles that measure 6 mm in diameter…
