Please check out this video showing the making of.

This is my digital circlist portrait of Elvis Presley. I've always admired him. I wanted to make something unusual and give him the aspect of a solid and invincible robot... but not a real "terminator" because he was especially a romantic man with one of the most beautiful voices ever...

Please enlarge to see how it's done. Each circle is made of a single color and a single tone on a black background. The whole portrait took me several days of intense work. There is no trick, those circles aren't placed automatically, I've positioned each circle one by one (and I've left the yellow background unfinished on purpose). I'm now going to make a digital circlist portrait of Freddie Mercury... :)

Love Me

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

Love me tender
Love me now
Our I’ll return to sender
Your love somehow

Love me for ever
And don’t let me go
Don’t be too cleaver
For me to know

Every your way
Is loves to take
You are my day
For each my heartache
Every your love
Be good or ill
Like clouds here above
Drift or rain spill

Love is in the air
This singing spring
Beauty is all around here
In that these times bring
Bouquet’s beautiful rose
How dear you are now
Fragrance sweet and close
Is summer days endow

Love me tender
Love me still
Every day is a splendor
With you to fulfill

Love me and give
All that I need
So feelings live
In that I can read

You are so me
With your passion
Taking and free
Never out of fashion
In all that’s said
Is bringing me more
In that we had
To give and then store

Love is in the air
This singing spring
Beauty is all around here
In that these times bring
Bouquet’s beautiful rose
How dear you are now
Fragrance sweet and close
Is summers days endow

I love the King! And how the red eye, while it makes reference to machines, more makes reference to how he's immortal through his legacy, memory and music. :heart:
