As the drawing rapidly took form, I was reminded of this sculpture by Marcel Duchamp:
Marcel Duchamp, "Marcel Duchamp Cast Alive"
Bronze, onyx, black Belgian marble
Nelson Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, Missouri
I've always been drawn to this artwork, in part because I once made a bronze sculpture that (accidentally) bore a slight resemblance to it. More importantly, I have always been interested in people and their personalities; Duchamp's sculpture is actually made from a cast of himself, so it is an exact lifesize reproduction of what the man looked like. Since I will obviously never get the opportunity to meet him in person, this sculpure is the next best thing.
It was purely a coincidence that my drawing resembled the Duchamp sculpture. But I really like coincidences. And as rapidly as my drawing was finished, it was almost as if I had an extra hand guiding mine tonight...
