I was trolling around on Lost at E Minor and stumbled upon these awesome portraits (I LOVE portraits) by Nick Gentry.  Inspired by the sociological impact of new internet culture this Brit artist uses obsolete media formats like, floppy discs, VHS tapes, Polaroids and cassette tapes as the canvas for his unique portraits (at least someone out there is re-using them!).

You can check out his book here on Blurb which gives you an idea of what he's trying to communicate via his paintings.

Maybe a little too dark for the baby's room, but I'm definitely going to follow Gentry's progress.
