Robyn O’Neil. Graphite on Paper. Nebraskan.



These photos hardly do Robyn O’Neil’s work justice – they’re massive (in scale), mechanical-pencil drawings of Man and Nature. I first heard about her in an issue of The Believer from a few years back and have had one of her works on my bedroom wall ever since.
Being a Werner Herzog fan, I was intrigued by her advice to artists everywhere:
“Obsess about Werner Herzog. He’s the best artist there is. You’ll watch and listen to all of his films constantly. His commentary tracks will be infinitely galvanizing.”
