Famous Paintings as Face Paintings by Andy Alcala

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

In his newest series, FaceArtists, Andy Alcala uses a different kind of canvas -- his own face.

The Iowa-based photographer posted his series of self portraits with homages to iconic paintings, from Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh and The Scream by Edvard Munch to Girl with Balloon by Banksy (pictured above).

See the rest of the series on Alcala's flickr page.
