James Haggerty is an artist who works in many different media. Among his more inventive projects are large mosaics of Star Wars characters that use tens of thousands of individual staples.
Isn't that amazing? I've never thought of using staples for art, but I can see how they would work well.
You can see more of his work at Nerd Approved, including an image of C-3PO consisting of 33,580 staples.
