James Kuhn, an incredible artist, is the man behind these unique face paintings. An interesting part about this project is that he paints on his own face, a new mask every day for a year. That is 365 totally different designs, everything from cartoons to his favorite foods.

He started with the project one day he missed work because he was snowed in, and his inspiration came from photo exhibitions of a picture that he saw one day.
