We love people who make a name for themselves in strange and creative ways, so when we heard about a guy who paints celebrity faces on Easter eggs every year, we had to hear his story.

In our first edition of "What's Trending Profiles," we visited artist and actor Barak Hardley, who has been creating these weirdly amazing creations every Easter for several years.

"So a few years ago, I got drunk and thought I'd paint some Easter eggs," he told us. "I think I painted an Abraham Lincoln on an egg, and I thought, 'Oh my god, this is fun!' So I did more."

It's kind of spiraled out of control from there, but the result is pretty cool. His egg collection now includes Dolly Parton, Stevie Wonder, Mr. T, Neil deGrasse Tyson and Professor Snape.

He starts planning his latest egg-painting project around Christmas, and the painting itself takes him a good month. "I think I did 60 or so last year, so I'm shooting for 75 this year."
