Artist Chris LaPorte entered his 28 ft. wide by 8 ft. high pencil drawing entitled Cavalry, American Officers, 1921 into the ArtPrize competition in Grand Rapids, MI. His sweet, photo realistic drawing just won him $250,000.
The others in the competition didn't make out too bad either. 2nd place received $100,000, 3rd place received $50,000 and 4th through 10th received $7,000 a piece. The competition included over 1,700 artists.
