Artist Memorializes Late Grandfather By Sketching The 100,000+ Items Contained In His Old Toolshed

 

Artist Lee John Phillips has undertaken what must be the biggest project of his life. Lee's grandfather passed away around 20 years ago and his tool shed has remained untouched ever since. With this in mind, the artist decided to commemorate him by hand-drawing each of the 100,000+ items in the shed! This epic project should take Lee around 4 or 5 years and includes drawing each nail and screw individually!

 

To date Lee has drawn around 4,000 items so still has a lot of work to do. He is already having physio due to the physical strain of the amount of drawing he has already done and he is currently only around 5% of the way into the project! You can follow the artist's progress on his Instagram page here. A must see!
