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!

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.
