A Denver artist has created a portrait of Florida shooting suspect George Zimmerman using more than 12,000 Skittles _ the candy that 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was carrying when Zimmerman fatally shot him.

The 3-by-4-foot portrait was done by 31-year-old Andy Bell, an art student about to graduate from Metropolitan State College in Denver.

Bell titled it "Fear Itself."(continued)

Artist?

Ha!

When one uses (apparent) computer enlargements to outline where to apply color, such a fraud requires no more talent than did the 50s "paint-by-number" fad.

This is no more "art" than is a coloring book.

Will his next masterpiece be a portrait of Rev Al using skillets?

Zim’s Hispanic heritage like the MSM did.

“31-year-old Andy Bell, an art student about to graduate”

(peering into crystal ball)
I see, I see ... a long career with Target/Costco/Fedmart

That varnish has got to improve the taste though. What is it
with these kids and their Skillets and Twizzlers and Red
vines/licorice whips and Sugar Daddies, dam whippersnappers,
stop throwing your wrappers on my lawn. I’ll call the cops,
and I mean it, throw your trash away, rot your teeth if you
want but (incoherent)

Another FreePer posted that “Skittles Parties” involve various pills of different colors.

Couldn’t this “artist” have used the correct “medium”?

“We heard through the grapevine that young people would have these ‘skittles’ parties. Teens would go into a medicine cabinet and just take one or two pills from each bottle so it wasn’t noticed, and they’d put them all in a bowl and just start taking them”

AWSOME! The first photo of “President Skittles” throwing his unicorn in reverse.

“shooting suspect George Zimmerman”

He’s not a “shooting suspect.” We know he shot; he admitted it. He’s not even a murder suspect, really. I think by this point you call him the accused or a defendant.

He looks like a character from Super Nintendo, or something.

>"the candy that 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was carrying"

Unless someone has PROOF, this is speculative conjecture, rumor and innuendo.

According to Al Sharpton, Trayvon was carrying skillets, a potential weapon.

"Fear Itself!"

I'm sure the 31-year old graduate of another American college of leftwing indoctrination is capable of more than such a NEGATIVE mosaic.

After all here's some works of his artistic predecessors:

In fact I can see one of these in his future (of cause payed for by some laundered Obama stimulus money):
