What is it?
Personal Statement: “If I had to explain it in one short sentence, it would be a struggle, similar to that of a grounded seal trying to climb inside a sleeping bag without any human intervention. And if I really had to… I might achieve something like, “It is his, his own, and exists only from an inconceivable degree of patience, intricacy, thought, creativity, skill in hand with experimentation and over analysis.” Or something like that.
The chainsaw carvings are pretty amazing. And actually featured at the Raise the Roof art exhibition in London in 2010, where some of the viewers actually thought the pieces were made out of clay until informed otherwise.
Two other hand drawn pictures from MickyMoo also featured at the exhibition, one of which was related to a Shotty.co.uk EP cover, the first of many to follow.
The level of detail can only be perceived upon close inspection of the original drawing or scanned copy (hopefully available soon from this website – update to follow). All these types of pictures are hand drawn using thin fibre tipped pens. And as you can imagine, take a ridiculous amount of time.
