Andy Bell's Skittles

A fortnight ago I posted a photo of a hairdo in the image of seventeen-year-old Trayvon Martin, who was shot to death in February when taking a shortcut through a gated private estate (CLICK). Denver art student Andy Bell has created this 3-by-4-foot Portrait of George Zimmerman, who has been arrested following mass protests against police lethargy and charged with second-degree murder (CLICK). The portrait is made out of Skittles. Why skittles? This was the candy Trayvon Martin had gone to buy (title link). A telling choice of medium for this portrait, which Andy calls Fear Itself.
