Line Drawings — Space Odyssey



Those drawings were created about the same time with others.

When a friend Brazilian artist, organized an exhibition called “Draw Drawing” (2004)

at the Brazilian Embassy,  I helped him to set up and I prepared to exhibit those drawings

too,  in case if not many drawings were submitted (in order to fill the wall space.  🙂 ) 

It was organized through Internet (= one of very early attempt of this kind),  surprisingly,

huge number of  drawings were submitted from all over the world, in A-0 to post-card size. 

But, in order to put up all  600 drawings,  we needed to create  new walls in the Embassy’s

big conference room.

—– Exhibition was a huge success  (the amount itself overwhelmed  visitors  🙂 )  though,

after the event, my friend got huge headache to send them back to each artist because he

couldn’t anticipate the power of Internet in such extent.

He thought, only the friends and the friend of  friends in England who can come and

collect their work,  may respond to his call,  but more than half of the artists who sent

their work for exhibition,  were from abroad.


My drawings here got the same idea to Space Odyssey 2001,  that the life-form originated

from other planet and spread from there.   (Left drawing was designed to test the pure

imagination =  how impossible posture (hence no photo) could be realistically created) 

—– (This series got two more drawings though,  I couldn’t find them in this moment, 

whether they are somewhere else with its frame or I might have given to my friend in

the mids of chaos of taken-down the exhibition.   🙂 )

      Great to hear from you Karen.
      Strangely, I have little recollection, how I conceived the idea and drawn them.
      In one month, drawn 300 —- may be only my hands were working (and the brain was empty) 😀

    Oh, these are fantastic, Yoshi-sensei! I’m so glad to see them!

      I’m very glad to hear you said it Lemony, because some activist fussing with gender issue,
      sexism etc. has objected them before, saying such as “Why Zennist always draw naked woman ?”
      “Because I’m not very keen to draw male body as I’m not a gay like Michaelangelo. :-D”
      “Why it need to be naked ?”
      “Because, I’m not very fashion conscious nor familiar with hair style still, at least I
      know what the body shape looks like. :-D” Ha ha ha 😀
