Local painter and illustrator Nathan Durfee has taken the heavyweight belt in Eye Level Art's "Portrait Slam."
In it 16 contenders competed throughout round by round until there were just two left standing: Nathan and Scott Debus -- painter and one of the people behind Kulture Klash.
In the end Debus just couldn't hold out (at least by the three judge's make) and the check and paint-brush themed belt went to Nathan.
You can check out Nathan's round-by-round drawing on his blog and see the rest of the work at Eye Level Art at their 103 Spring Street space. (843) 425-3576.
