May 2010: I intend to continue to profile contemporary artists once or twice a week. On the other days, I intend to draw… whatever I darn well feel like!

Today’s artist is American Alex Queral. He works in a variety of media but his largest and most well-known body of work is portraits of celebrities and friends carved in relief out of… discarded phonebooks. He’s not on flickr, but you should check out his work at the link below, it’s fantastic.

You can see Alex’s artwork here:…

We’re having a Portrait Party on flickr – more than 150 artists drawing each other! If you’re an artist who’d like to draw/paint other flickr artists, please join the Portrait Party at:
