Seattle artist Phil Hanson painted 30 different people that influenced him one on top of another on his torso, then he trimmed a little off of the edges, took that strip and rolled it up. (His Bush portrait will remind you of the war president collage that Michael Moore did in April 2004. From Blort)

The Phil Hanson video was fabulous. The paint just got thicker and thicker and I was so happy he did something creative with it in the end.
