Cee Lo Green turned 38 years old yesterday (May 30), and to celebrate Cheetos commissioned a 3' x 4' portrait of Cee Lo and his cat Purrfect, reports USA Today. Look at it here.

Jason Baalman, an internet artist who has made art using pennies, ketchup and lipstick, spent 42 hours gluing all of the Cheetos together. He also spent four hours sorting through the three types of Cheetos he used, which included Cheetos Crunch, Cheetos Flaming Hot and Natural Cheetos. He used seven family-size bags of Crunchy, 12 family-size bags of Flaming hot and 15 bags of Natural Cheetos to make the portrait.

Two versions of the portrait were created: one that was given to Cee Lo and another that you can win on the Cheetos Facebook page
