Up until today, I thought toothpicks were only good for removing food from between my teeth, and maybe providing a bit of mint flavor in the process. That all changed when I saw this collection of toothpick celebrity portraits. Using nothing but toothpicks, the artist was able to create likenesses of celebrities like Oprah, Tiger Woods, and even Clint Eastwood. Each piece bears a striking resemblance to its subject, despite the simple nature of the art. I can’t help but wonder where all these toothpicks came from. Somewhere out there, there’s a diner check out counter completely barren of complimentary toothpicks, but hey, that seems like a worthwhile sacrifice in exchange for these portraits.
