He should've simply thickened up her mustache or something to make it appear different from the photo.

So it's OK to paint Campbell's Soup cans and Brillo pad boxes but using an AP picture as an inspiration is right out? Touchy.

I didn't know it was illegal to paint from a picture? It's not an exact copy. Why is this a story? Oh, because it's George Zimmerman. If it was Joe Blow, nobody would care. Leave the guy alone! He was acquitted by a jury so accept it and move on!

BTW. When is Angela Corey going to put on trial (and hopefully disbarred) for burying evidence favorable to the Defense? I know whe was under investigation.... I think GZ's likeness Ms. Corey is spot on.

The far Left, (which would include the Associated Press) will never come to grips with the fact that GZ was not convicted because GZ was not guilty. (of anything)

"So it's OK to paint Campbell's Soup cans and Brillo pad boxes but using an AP picture as an inspiration is right out? Touchy."... Spot on. I don't recall Andy Warhol ever being sued by the maker's of Campbell's soup.

"George Zimmerman's exact whereabouts are unknown".. He should be working in an executive position with Amtrak or Soo Line. GZ sure has plenty of experience in being railroaded.

..and if wasn't someone who had gotten off for murder, it wouldn't be a story.
