October (Birthday) Surprises
You may not be familiar with collage artist and illustrator Hanoch Piven, but you may have seen his work — the Israeli artist has done found-object portraits, most of them of celebrities and political figures, for Time, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, and others. He has also authored books featuring his artwork, including "What Presidents are made of" and "My Dog is as Smelly as Dirty Socks," which is made from anything ranging from light bulbs to toilet seats. Read on to see Piven's creative portraits of celebrities and famous figures with birthdays in October, including former President Jimmy Carter, who is turning 97 at the beginning of the month.
