Artist Kyle Bean has created five unique portraits for the contributors page of Wallpaper* Handmade 2011.

Notes about project by Bean (from his website):

[…] Last years’ Handmade issue was a huge success and has since gained many awards including a yellow pencil at D&AD for its custom covers. I therefore feel very privileged to have been asked to work on the contributors page for this years issue. I have created the portraits from different coloured pencil shavings. I am also working on a short time-lapse film showing the process of making one of the portraits which you will be able to see on the Wallpaper* Ipad app when the issue comes out.
