    That looks like an illustration to me.

    But if you're lazy, I'd mess around with Filters>Artisitic>Poster Edges in Photoshop to start.

    That's not a processed photograph, it's an illustration.

    .

    It's probably a traced photo, but it's definitely done by hand.

    I guess some artsy filter and tracing over is the best approach

    There are a few programs that convert raster images to vector, then play around in photoshop, might be a lot quicker than tracing.

    last time I used one was in flash and it produced some crap results, but playing around with it in illustrator would probably yield better results.

    You can do it in photoshop. That very well could have been a picture.

    Yeah... You can pretty easily tell the difference between line quality from that to the the original post. You get significant muddling when you do it with a PS filter, that is the roughness between shades.
