"For #pridemonth I’m doing 30 days of #gay icons in collage portraits. First up: the effervescent #DorisDay..." Matt Hinrichs is a designer, artist, and collector living in Phoenix, Arizona. This year to celebrate Pride Month he created a different paper collage of a gay icon and posted it to Instagram every day. The results are pretty amazing. (Note: all links go to Instagram. Individual collages linked inside.)

4. Elton John

Full disclosure: I've been a fan of Matt's art for years and have commissioned some illustrations from him in the past. Once when travelling in Arizona he was kind enough to meet up in person. I would've shared the collages even if I hadn't met him because I think they're pretty cool.
