So, we had this assignment… a perspective drawing using Conte’ crayon and charcoal, combining one-point and two-point perspective. Other requirements were some sort of grid or pattern, vanishing into mountains in the distance, at least one building and an amorphous shape. My first attempt was way too ambitious with tons of figures, shapes and a building with windows and doors. No way. Then, I thought I’d put a rocket on the moon, greeted by blobbish locals, with multiple moons orbiting. Again, too busy. So, I arrived at this abstraction of the axis of evil and their quest for the bomb.
