Zippo and Coke by Naterman Zippo and Coke by Naterman
To start off, this piece was very fun! My number one goal was to try and make it as photorealistic as I could. I think I got pretty close, but there are several little things that stick out to me and are not worth stating.

I used my favorite media on this; Sharpie permanent marker. I had a hard time scanning the picture due to its size so the image you see was taken with my camer and does not completely show off the piece's true beauty.

I spent close to 30 hours completing this piece. My main inspiration for it was Brian Duey. He has done a few pieces with zippos and one of my favorites of his features a pepsi can. So, I thought I'd change it up a bit and put a coke can in mine, but there really was no substitute for a zippo...

So Enjoy!

Completed 2008

Hehe, nice one! :) I'm thinking about buying a Zippo just for the sake of having one, even though I have no need for it whatsoever.

So, THIS is what you meant by, "you'll be surprised." To be honest, I'm not as surprised as I thought I would be...Somehow I always knew you would make it to photorealism. This is truly beautiful...and I never thought I would say that about a coca-cola can and a lighter. :) So, am I surprised? No. Am I in aw, anyway? Of course. You take my breath away mister. ;)
