Portraits made with postage stamps

Collecting postage stamps isn’t exactly a new hobby, making portraits out of stamps however, does give the story a twist. British artist Peter R. Mason makes use of thousands of stamps to create each of these brilliant portraits. The process requires quite an attention to detail, and lots of hardwork. Mason starts off by drawing the image on a canvas, and then dividing it into numerous stamp-sized squares. The stamps are then carefully removed from their envelopes, and sorted by design, color and post mark pattern before they can be glued on to the canvas to create these pixilated postage stamp portraits.
