in love ... with eugene andolsek.

i'm in love with eugene andolsek.  born in 1921, andolsek didn't start drawing until the 1950s when he needed an escape from a job that he didn't like as a stenographer for the railroad.  in the evenings he would compose his drawings at his kitchen table, and with some graph paper, a compass and a straight edge, he created these incredibly intricate works of art.  during his life he never considered himself an artist, but i think that these pieces prove otherwise.  see more of his work at the american primitive gallery here
