What This Guy Created With His Old Cassette Tapes Truly Is Amazing. Just Wow.

Erika Iris Simmons is an amazingly talented artist who has found a way to give a relic of old media like the cassette tape a second life in her work. Using the magnetic tape she unspools from the cassette, she crafts wonderful portraits of some of the most famous names in all of music. Despite having such little to work with, Simmons is able to add depth and detail to her portraits that would prove to be impressive even if she were using more traditional art supplies. Check them out!

2.) Lauryn Hill

3.) Jerry Garcia

4.) Bob Marley

5.) Jon Bon Jovi

6.) Van Morrison

7.) The Clash
