I painted this pair of sunglasses for a swap based on Hunter S Thompson and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. I'm entering the leaving Las Vegas sign and not the Ralph Steadman inspited bat. It's not the best of show but it was really hard making those tiny letters using the tiniest needle I had as a paintbrush...

I wish I could get better pics in daylight but that's all folks.


Can I post better pics after sunrise?

I'll still be touching this up once it is dry but I had to send in before the deadline.

This is an artistic representation of what would have been reflected in Hunter S Thompson's Sunglasses as he was leaving Las Vegas after the Fear and Loathing incident.

Well the one lens is less than 2" at the widest and just the sign on it is my official entry  - not the bat one (since I painted the sign with the tip of a pin).  The other lens is not being entered. Also if you look closely I'm taking the pictures from the side mostly so the measuring tape looks off (note all the space extra on the left side on most pics). I think I'm OK...?

Here - for reference -

Now that has got to be the most creative thing I have seen in a  long time.
Very cool!
