Drawing specs

Title: The Locust Has No King
Dimensions: 5″ x 7″
Materials: Graphite on vellum
Series: From the Proverbs 30 Art series, made in 2017.

Locusts march in ranksThis is the 38th drawing in my Proverbs 30 art series. I’ve been working on this set of work since January of 2015.

Each drawing is quite small and requires a pretty intense level of detail, which makes it a tedious process to make the drawings. They’re quite portable, though, so many have been made on airplanes or in church.

This one, on the other hand, I made at my drafting table.

You can watch me make it in the short video below.

With this drawing done, I’m nearing the end of the series. Less than a dozen more to go.

This is the pencil extender I use (yes, that’s an affiliate link). Because of it, my pencils last forever … which I think is pretty neat. Do recommend.

Take a look at The Locust Has No King in context of all the other drawings in the series.
