From the guy who brought you a mosaic of Whitney Houston made out of prescription pills, comes a portrait of Lindsay Lohan made out of garbage. Artist Jason Mecier cobbled together trash and recycling to create a portrait of the tabloid star with a sort of Mona Lisa half-smile. It's made of everything Lohan needs for a night out: make-up, jewelry (hopefully not stolen), sunglasses, credit cards, cell phones, bottles of booze, handcuffs, prescription bottles and cigarette butts. A collectible nail file from "Mean Girls" and bullet casings were thrown in for good measure.

Mecier says he's a fan of his trashy muse: "I love Lindsay! I'm a huge fan! She seems to love publicity and controversy so I think she will like it. It's all in fun. This would look great hanging in Lindsay's living room."
