Andrew Myers' Screw Portraits

Artist Andrew Myers drives screws at varying depths into plywood and paints them, creating unique 3D images:

"For me, I consider this a traditional sculpture and all my screws are at different depths," he said. "There's nothing planned out. I draw out a figure on the board and figure out the depths.

"The real challenge comes when the sculpture is done and I have to get rid of the flat drawing. It's hard because of the screws -- you can't get a brush behind them. I did figure out a way to do it, but I'm keeping it a secret."
