Monolithic drawing WIP 3 by arminmersmann Monolithic drawing WIP 3 by arminmersmann
Monolithic update

Pencil on Illustration Board

Full drawing 30” x 40” this image 7” x 7”

This is the fourth element in this drawing, The seconded being my step fathers eye and the sky and bulb being the first.

This is drawing of my father’s eye, artist, creator, destroyer, blue collar philosopher an eye of a romantic living a charmed life. Coming upon eighty years of age, has he attained the dreams, reached goals set so long ago? Or avoided success. This symbol speaks of grand accomplishments and painful losses, but where hope never diminishes.

(on the morning of 9/10/11 at 7:40 my father Fritz Mersmann passed away quietly and peacefully. He was my hero in so many ways, my greatest teacher in art, my inspiration in life. He was truly a beautiful soul……………Gods Speed Papa, I love you.)

Thanks for looking

I have always thought I was a pretty good artist, then I look at people like you and remember I suck.
Tehe.

On a lighter note, this is truly amazing. I was literally speechless when I saw this. I showed it to all my friends and asked if they thought it was a photograph or a drawing, they all said photo.

Any tips on how to be amazing like you?
