Friday Music Inspiration: Notorious B.I.G. Money Shot


This B.I.G. portrait created by ilustrator Evan Wondolowski. Evan has made a series of portraits from shredded strips of U.S. Federal Reserve Notes, he then glues the paper bits to newspaper sheets. Talk about tedious! Gotta love his attention to detail. See more from the portrait series here.
