It’s about creating an illusion whereby the viewer doesn’t know which item is real and which is a drawing.
It kind of makes people question reality.
It makes them question what they see.
Because when they see one of my videos, for the first few seconds, the brain sees a real object and then there’s a reveal and you understand that you were tricked.
The first one that really got noticed was the hot dog drawing challenge.
I liked that one because it was kind of one of the first times I started to I guess, slightly ruin the drawings by pouring stuff on them and chopping them.
My favorite ones are the ones where everything gets destroyed to be honest.
Erm, like the object gets smashed, or cut in half, or I’ve done a one where there was some fries and a coke gets poured all over them.
For me, those ones where there’s a kind of big destructive element at the end are the most fun.
The most complicated drawings are always man-made forms, it’s all the geometry of logos and text.
The one that was most surprising was I drew an ice cream cone and I thought that would be so easy.
I’d never really looked at a waffle cone properly, but the geometry of a waffle cone and the repeated shapes just seemed to take forever and I was quite surprised.
