Michael Esson's Mixed Metaphors

Michael Esson's work is mind blowing, 
Nothing can really be said except that he holds a class at my university where you draw dead people.
Unfortunately his show at Manly Art Gallery is over.
Above is but a sketch I made of one of his massive drawings, to see the real work is something completely different.
Most of his work is over a meter or two meters large, and there is a wonderful, unapologetic focus of drawn images. Of describing objects through purely dry mediums with various styles.

There are too many painters around, 
Hurray for people who draw!

  1. Ah Jess you are quite the talented artist. I watched as you drew this and I must say your attention to detail is remarkable. The fact that you brought all your colour pencils is an added bonus. There needs to be a revival of biros in art, thanks for paving the way.
