Boing Boing: Insanely obsessive ultra realistic vector art.
To me this image looks like someone took the photo and cut it up and worked backwards to make it look like it was made from scratch.
Even if it was 'made from scratch' it looks to me like the pieces are from a real person.

Here's what he said:
It's pretty amazing if it is real (not that you can believe anything on the web anymore)...but at a certain point, why not just take a picture of it?Ha!
