Iconic Singers by Xiloria Iconic Singers by Xiloria
Hey guys I just wanted to do something out of my comfort zone for once. This was all made solely out of Casette Tape film. Each of these individuals have impacted a lot of the current artist's in todays music industry and I just wanted to do a tribute for them! 

Each one is about 9x12. Whole thing took me a looooooong time to finish. Anyways, from left to right : Mariah Carey, John Lennon, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, and lastly Ozzy Osbourne. Hope you guys guys enjoy this as much as I did creating it!

Edit : Thank you so much for the DD! I feel so honored :)

Is it just me or does John Lennon look a lot like Harry Potter in this? XD

Great pic lineup, it's really neat to look at and very well done :D So all the black parks are rolled-up tape? That's very interesting, I've never seen that done!
