This is my 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. I've only used circles of different sizes and colors 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. I'm now going to make a 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
