Freewheeling imagination


Kim Jung Gi puts in another solid performance, this time with a Pentel brush pen, drawing bikers, babes, pigs, tigers, and a Monkey King on a big blank sheet of paper with no lay-in. The time lapse film has no sound, and I wish the camera operator had been a little smoother with the moves.

How is it possible to draw something that complex without sketching it out at least roughly first? He's an incredibly gifted artist. So impressed!

Inhuman... perfect except for the bike wheels, which super hard to draw even with references and a rough sketch

Tom Hart said...

This is quite daunting, but I'm even more impressed by the apparent lack of reference material than I am by the lack of a sketch or rough.

¡Jamás había nada igual!
Me dan ganas de tirar la toalla.
Oh, my God! I never seen something like that.

An excess of drawing! On top of it with all those countless overlapping postures, including individual expressions and physiognomies.

More than the drawing is the knowledge that impressed me. This man has looked at A LOT of stuff. I mean we've all seen it, but he looked at it. He sat there and counted how many holes are in the exhaust of a motorcycle, he knows the anatomy of a pig, dog, and a goat so well, that he can improvise their movements. He knows how a truck engine is put together. How the epaulets on a police uniform are constructed. I believe this man to be a great draughtsman, but more than that, he has certainly learned to look and remember. I think that any of us would do much better in our own work if we took the time to add to our mental encyclopedia of "stuff" by really seeing and then remembering. I for one am encouraged to begin.

Fascinating to watch! Stylistically, his work reminds me of Mort Drucker a lot.

Heh I was wondering who it was everyone in his drawing were chasing... I love how he kept it for the last.
