Phenomenal work! Might I ask in what order did you do the drawing? How many hours? And what was your inspiration?

i started with the roots then the eyes, i would say it took about 500 hours, its owned by the Chicago Art Institute, the holocaust and German guilt was my inspiration

I'm speechless. That really is phenomenal! It must have taken years to complete.
That is an excellent choice of theme.
