...To the Last Clang of the Rail


"A day without a dark cloud. Almost a happy day.
There were three thousand six hundred and fifty-three days like that in his stretch.
From the first clang of the rail to the last clang of the rail."
-One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

...To the Last Clang of the Rail is ink and newspaper on wood panel. 48" x 48"

Below is a video of the final step in the process of making these pieces. I already penciled in the outlines and just needed to ink everything in. Thanks Zachs for the extra help with the video, it wouldn't have been possible without both of you.
