George Zimmerman Skittles portrait: Student Andy Bell creates Zimmerman portrait with candy

The shooting death of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin has prompted protests, rallies and marches over the past six weeks.

Now it's inspired something else -- an unusual portrait by a Denver art student.

Calling it "Fear Itself," Andy Bell used 12,000 pieces of Skittles candy to create a portrait of George Zimmerman, the man charged with second degree murder in the death of Martin.

The image is getting a lot of attention, even though it has only been on display at a Denver art center for just a couple days.  

Several art galleries outside Colorado are interested in buying the work.

One expert estimates it could sell for tens of thousands of dollars.
