On February 20, Heath Ledger’s good friend Vincent Fantauzzo submitted a portrait he painted of the actor for the Archibald Prize which is the most prominent of all arts prizes in Australia.

The paper documenting the session in which Heath sat for the painter is dated December 29, 2007, less than a month before his untimely death. The painting itself is almost prophetic depicting three Heath characters, the central that looks absolutely exhausted and run down, and two side characters that are almost chaotic whispering into his ears.

It was made public after his death the actor had suffered from severe insomnia due to his racing mind before his death.
