NOTE: Inevitably people will ask how long a drawing takes me. Those who see me draw during a concert know that these take me the length of the concert and are usually amazed by that. But, like any artist or musician knows, this is after many years of practice. To do a drawing like this years ago might have taken many many hours or days even (and still not attained this spontaneous, fluid effect). So, "how long does it take?", let the viewer decide.
