This Ripken Ain’t Tacky


With the economy in the tank, everyone in America has a bit more (or too much) free time. For example, here is a guy who took 10,115 thumbtacks and made an incredibly realistic portrait of Cal Ripken. The overall project took 30 hours and all those thumbtacks cost $400, I’d say it was well worth it. Enjoy!

    He’s sort of cute… And has a source of income and an artistic soul. Sold!

    In my opinion, copying pictures is one of the lowest forms of art. Exceptions can be made if the materials involved take skill and manipulation(not in this case). This is a solid B- in a high school art class and not much else. Southerner, there are lots of real artists out there who make money, you can buy way better.

    Oh no, I would never buy that piece. I was talking about being sold on the guy… And sarcastically, anyway. I promise to just give you money first, should I ever decide to start collecting push=pin art.
