In images: Man makes MLK Jr. portrait out of 4,242 Rubik's Cubes

Pete Fecteau blocked out most of last year to work on "Dream Big," his portrait and tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. He used over 4,200 Rubik's Cubes to get it done, and the finished product weighs over 1,000 pounds and measures about 20 feet wide and 10 feet tall. We're assuming he didn't just move the stickers around.

According to Fecteau, the impetus for the project came from a dream of his own: "I woke up from the dream and it was like I was on fire. I spend three hours that morning writing down the concept and brainstorming. When I stepped back I realized how bat-s*** crazy it was but there was something pushing me to make it a reality. Sometimes I don't think I woke up from that dream. It still seems crazy."

Man, a year is a hell of a long time to work on something. Fecteau should get himself one of those fancy Rubik's Cube solving robots and program that thing to churn out portraits for him lickety-split. Well, a robot, or this guy.
