Artist Re-Creates Ellen’s Oscar Selfie By Drawing the Photo By Hand and You Can’t Tell the Difference
Unless you have been living under a rock for the last few weeks, you have undoubtedly seen, or at least heard about Ellen Degeneres' Oscar Selfie that became the most re-tweeted photo ever. Bradley Cooper actually took the photo and technically owns the rights to the photo, but that's another blog. I don't know about you, but I can't draw to save my life...I even struggle with stick figures, so imagine trying to re-create that selfie in a hand-drawn sketch. That is exactly what artist Heather Rooney did.
Rooney captured her project on video and posted it to YouTube in time-lapse fashion and the result is nothing short of stunning. You have to respect this kind of amazing talent. Rooney's finished product is so good, you almost can't tell it apart from the actual photo.
Now, may I 'draw' your attention to the below video? Prepare to be amazed.
