This Unique Shirt is Made Out of 6,500 Screws


We're going to guess that you've never seen a shirt quite like this. It's been over two years since we first came across the incredible screw portraits by Andrew Myers. The Laguna Beach-based artist stunned us with his unique works that were made by patiently drilling in 8,000 to 10,000 screws into plywood panel. Myers doesn't rely on any computer software to guide him. Instead, he drills in screws at different depths all by instinct to create his magnificent 3-D portraits.

In his latest work, titled "It's been a long day," Myers made a 4 foot by 4 foot sculpture of a men's dress shirt. It consists of 6,500 screws, oil paint, French newspaper clippings from the 1910's to 30's, and wood. Check out the fun, short video he made about the piece at Facebook.

Myers recently redesigned his website. It includes, not only his trademark screw portraits, but also some thought-provoking bronze sculptures, as well. Hop on over there to see his full body of work.
