Adam Rex's Portrait of Andre the Giant as Fezzik

Yesterday I posted Ben Balistreri's contribution to the "Hey You Guys!" charity event. And today, here's Adam Rex's contribution. Here's how Adam describes it:
The second annual Hey You Guys charity event is set for December 5th at the Rialto Theater in South Pasedena, CA. There will be an auction of art inspired by family movies of the 80's, and a screening of Ghostbusters. All proceeds benefit Donors Choose, which is incidentally the charity for which I've been growing this damn mustache. So I've painted a little 5x7 portrait of Andre the Giant as Fezzik from The Princess Bride.
And here it is:



What's terrific about it is that I can hear Andre the Giant saying "Sportsmanlike" just by looking at it. (If you're not sure what Rex means about "this damn mustache," he's growing one for charity, as he did last year. Check out the progress over on his blog. And if you haven't picked up Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich, Frankenstein Takes the Cake, The True Meaning of Smekday, Psst, Tree Ring Circus, or any of the other spectacular books to which Rex has contributed illustrations and/or text, what the heck are you waiting for?!
