[“desertmanhttan” hanging on the wall of our living room, May 2014]

“desertmanhttan” (as in Sahara, not deserted) is the largest drawing I ever made, taking literally months to complete. Below are photographs that that try to give the piece some sort of justice, by showing the enormity and the intensity of the work,  close-up. I hope you like.
