Artist Brings Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas Poster Art To Life

(Image Link)

Johnny Depp did a great job of capturing Hunter S. Thompson's manic spirit in Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas, but nothing captured the feeling of being on a suitcase full of drugs like the poster art.

That image of Hunter's head floating away from his body, the lenses of his sunglasses full of highway streaks, really brought that drug-fueled freak out feeling to life.

And then visual effects artist Kevin Kirkpatrick made the whole scene even freakier by turning it into a hyperrealistic sculpture.

Kevin created this slightly larger-than-life bust with the goal of bringing the hallucinatory artwork into the real world just as it appears on the poster, from the streaks to the stubble to the cig holder clenched between his teeth.

Kevin's sculpture is so lifelike it made this shot look unintentionally hilarious!
