Nashville-based sculpture Herb Williams never put down his crayons. His work in this unique medium (crayon sculptures) is awe-inspiring (previous post here). This commissioned piece, composed of about 25,000 crayons, took about two months to complete. In Williams’ own words, “The real fun of the portrait is in adding colors that aren’t really there to make it more interesting, almost like a Chuck Close when you’re right up to the portrait, it’s abstract, but from a distance it completely works.” It really does work on so many levels… we are thoroughly impressed.
