These portraits are blowing my mind!  At first, I thought the painted people were photoshopped into the pictures, but it turns out artist Alexa Meade paints on live models to make them appear two-dimensional. You can see the difference in that 2D/3D split she did on herself. How rad would it be to actually see an installation?

Check out her flickr feed for more awesomeness.
