It's Walt Disney's birthday! Crowds Artist Yasser Hamed recently created this one-of-a-kind portrait of Walt Disney that uses 12,000 1 1/16 inch pins.

On this day 119 years ago, Walt Disney was born. The man was far from perfect, but there's no denying that he changed not just the world of animation, but of entertainment in general, and for that, he will always be one of my heroes.#WaltDisney pic.twitter.com/3DZbbx8sCb

Happy birthday, Walt Disney!
With his humble beginnings with a simple but lovable cartoon mouse, to being the founder of one of the biggest companies in the world, to making many classic films, he will always be one of the greatest people that ever lived. pic.twitter.com/2zG5AtLyQY
