Yesterday (Day 2) I hardly touched the drawing. I was busy doing other things.
Today I fooled around with it for a couple of hours in the morning. Quite pleased with the results, so far.
When I do large pieces, I rarely do the long, 18-hour obsessive stints that so many artists are known for. I prefer to whittle away at it in brief spurts over time- a little bit there, a little bit there, that kind of thing.
I’m guessing “Fred 42” will be done by month’s end, if all goes well. Rock on.
These kind of remind me of the depictions of hell that you see in Heirnoymous Bosch/Goya/Brueghel.
I’m watching these develop with keen interest.
The amount of time something like this takes has got to be tremendous–what patience!
Love your work!
In this style you draw directly on all the walls of one room of a museum for contemporary art. After the exhibition is closed they paint it over and the original piece is gone.
During the exhibition there are events: jam sessions with jazz musicians and poets, readings and interviews with you…
Later this piece of art only exists in scetches, handmade prints, videos, photo books, that’s where you make the money.
The original only exists for a couple of weeks.
i like it. It looks fun. Although you should probably use a tripod when you shoot or get in better lighting. It is hard to see the detail in some places.
I can see why you chip away. It has apeal but not quite there. If I also had your talent I’d want to give it some thought.
It’s done enough for me. How much do you want for it?
love to see it animated Hugh. And what about a ‘Where’s Wally’ version?

A bit of a tangental question but do you find your thought process is different on a larger project like this? I’m guessing that completing this work in stages gives your focus greater range over time. Like everyone else, I’m really enjoying watching it all come together.
How do you know when to stop?
