Incredible Pencil Drawings of Pop Culture Celebrities

If artist Rick Fortson didn’t sign his pencil drawings of film and television’s biggest celebrities, you’d have no idea that they were works of art instead of film stills or publicity photos in most cases. The incredible portraits are so realistically rendered, they mimic crisp black and white snapshots. Amazingly, Fortson is a self-taught artist, and his creations take anywhere from seven to 17 hours per piece. Head past the break to be blown away by Fortson’s amazing celebrity portraits.
