Artist Steve Kim‘s series Perfect (2) draws from an unexpected inspiration.  These elegant portraits are based on the avatars of Tumblr users.  Kim sourced material from the blogging platform that attracts so many creatives.  Avatars are often quickly executed and little thought over photographic portraits.  Kim rededicates time to each photo in order to render each as a proper piece of art.  Interestingly, each portrait’s title is also the repective blogger’s username.
