I was a member of the marching band in high school (hooray for clarinets!), so I know first hand how getting people to work in any sort of coordinated fashion is as difficult as herding cats. These aerial portraits of people organized in the likeness of pop culture icons from Marilyn Monroe to Audrey Hepburn seem like it’d be a doozy to put together, and artist Craig Alan apparently agreed! Instead of wrangling crowds into formation, he painted each figure in trompe l’oeil fashion – amazing, right? The inspiration behind the artwork came when Alan took photos from a building balcony and was intrigued by patterns created by the teeny tiny people walking about below.
