Jim Denevan made the world's largest freehand
drawing a few weeks ago on a dry lake in Nevada.
How big is it? Three mile across, which
took 100 miles of walking to draw the pattern:
Made by a single person... gone the next week
Jim says: "It is really really big. My first attempt at
a place so large. I think it represents about seven or eight days of walking."
This photo is from 13,000 feet above. Jim is a small speck in center...
His bus is also lost in the landscape (Jim's crew is taking
a driving tour of the completed drawing)
His custom bus:
Really groovy-looking bus, too. Jim Denevan uses this bus in his other
venture "Outstanding in the Field, where haute cuisine is served in the
middle of wild natural environment, such as a country field, a rocky
strewn coast, or a mountaintop.
"My drawings are made totally freehand - large, then shrunk (if photographed)
" "At low tide on wide beaches Jim searches the shore for a wave tossed stick.
After finding a good stick and composing himself in the near and far environment
Jim draws-- laboring up to 7 hours and walking as many as 30 miles. The resulting
sand drawing is made entirely freehand with no measuring aids whatsoever."
