scott wade dust drawings

i am amused and slightly inspired to empty the contents of the old miele and start drawing stick figures, now that i’ve seen the marvelously detailed dust art of texas artist scott wade. scott lives in hill country, an area where very fine dust is kicked up on backs of vehicles that move “any faster than a galloping turtle.” using paintbrushes to remove select areas of dust, shapes and figures emerge and the results are pretty amazing.

i look at them and start to sneeze so i totally appreciate seeing these through the computer! and i also love the way they look after it has rained.

see the full collection and contact scott on his website.

    Wow, that’s really amazing. Much better than the “Lava me” job I saw in the alley the other day…

    …and I’ve got to give Scott mad props for the Dogs Playing Poker tribute.
