The popular -- but unknown -- Google artist

[Dennis Hwang] has been manipulating the six letters in the Google name into shamrocks, fireworks, hearts and goblins since shortly after he got an internship there in 2000. Company founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin found out that he was an art major in college.

"They said 'Hey Dennis, why don't you give this a shot,' and I've been doing it ever since," he said.

From this CNN story about the man who has possibly the world's most enviable job: creating Google logos. The story also has a link to a slide show of his logos.
