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.

Biggie inspired drawings from illustrator/designer Jay Roeder. He updates his site daily with new work. That’s serious dedication. Check out more pieces here. Also, the winner of the Cheer Strange Talk “Climbing Walls” iPod Nano giveaway is Iris Eben. Iris you’ll be receiving an email from me shortly. Congrats! Have a great weekend everyone!

Fantastic illustrations by Ken Taylor. The detail in these are off the chain. More of his work including a really great poster of Bob Dylan can be found here.
