Artist Needs 10 Months for Huge Pen Drawing

 

American artist Joe Fenton has spent the last 10 months drawing on a single work. He used a 0.5 mechanical pen and worked in incredible detail on the 5 meter x 8 foot large drawing called "Solitude".

He was drawing 10 hours a day, 7 days a week and still needed 10 months to complete the picture. “It took courage to start it as I had never done anything that size before,” he said.

He included several religous figures and symbols in the drawing.

  I know this comes from the source article but,  
 
Meters and Feet should never be used together! 8 feet = 2.43 meters so it should be 5m x 2.4m OR it can be done the otherway 8ft x 16ft. The picture is awesome no matter the dimensions ;)

  It´s  
 
8x16´ (as per the obvious original measurement). I think it´s a fine job, as many of the world´s cherished works of art took years to complete.

But I cant help but think it looks like a highly developed drawing/scribbles that people do in Class, I know some of my Uni books were covered. or tattoos were people have kept adding more bits.
