I think in many ways, a lot of us were affected by Robin William's suicide. The man just hid those tears and fears so well, none of us knew he has struggling and hurting. That, in turn, made the news even more shocking. Seems YouTube artist Heather Rooney took some time to sit down and do a rather breathtaking and photo-realistic portrait of the sad star, and she captured the whole thing on time lapse so we can see it slowly breathe to life. In the wake of the news, there is something rather haunting about this. But you cannot deny the girl has some real talent.
Anytime someone can do a photo realistic piece of art it always blows my mind, but the subject here is what makes it so poignant. It is like we watch him come to life on the paper, only to be reminded that we will never again see that manic, brilliant performer shining. It's odd, but by the end of the video, you have a tear in your eye.
