This is an ultra realistic picture of Stephen Hawking drawn entirely in black Bic pen by my buddy Jesse Starr (of Bic pen Christopher Walken, Optimus Prime and that time-lapse painting he did of me riding a t-rex battling a volcano fame). It took Jesse 51-hours to complete and he's selling the original on eBay with 100% of the proceeds going to his cousin, who's battling colon cancer, and not to Jesse buying a shit-ton of KFC boneless chicken wings and seeing how many he can fit into his mouth at once like I would have expected him to do. He might just be a decent guy after all.
Hit the jump for several more shots including the source photo he used.
Thanks Jesse, and good luck and Godspeed to your cousin.
