      Hi Jamile : ) Yes, I am a big fan of Vik Muniz, and another artist who makes composite portraits, Ken Knowlton... these are my favorite artsits... they inspired me to make my own work, so I appreciate the suggestion! Thank you!

      Yeah, I see some similarity between your work and Muniz' work.
      He is brazilian and I'm brazilian too, so it's a pleasure to have such great artist in our country.
      And I will search about the work of Ken Knowlton... Thank you!

      Ok, first off, all of your work is fantastic. This piece however, really hit a never with me and moved me in an indescribable way. I wish I would have been wealthy enough to buy it in the first place, but just to see it... thank you for making this! Mad props to all of your work. Keep it up!

      Your pictures are absolutely amazing! Such a great idea. This is my favourite!

      I saw your article in the Metro, are you from the U.K? can I ask what glue you use also? i'd love to try it.

      Keep up the fantastic work x

      Hi Ged,
      Thanks so much! I live in Atlanta, far from the UK so it was quite a treat to be included in the Metro :) I use a clear, waterbased glue that you can get at craft stores. My favorite brand is AQUA MONO, a clear bottle with a blue cap at each end. I know you can get it in the UK at Francis Iles. Make sure the glue is waterbased so you can easily clean up extra glue with a damp qtip. To mount the cassette case be sure to use a strong epoxy glue (or superglue if you can't get that). Its such a fun project, but it takes a while. Best of luck!
