I used to work as an artist's assistant for a local artist/sculptor named Karl Stirner.
Karl is heavily influenced by Picasso.
He's had his works displayed in museums both domestically and abroad.
We still keep in contact and, just for curiosity, I looked up Picasso on youtube.
I found the promotional trailer for the 1956 movie, "Mystery Of Picasso".
I was intrigued when I saw Picasso making his works with magic marker.
I've always liked drawing. I've been drawing since I was a kid and I thought I'd give his works a try.
I never really felt that I had the talent for painting.
When I realized that some of the drawings included paint, I decided to present myself with a challenge: Recreate with ink, what Picasso did with paint!
