Watchworks





Lately I've been strangely fascinated by the inner workings of vintage watches. I came across a few antique watch movements a while ago and have since collected several more. I find the craftsmanship that went into those things really inspiring, so I selected my favorites, tacked them to my art table and did this series of drawings from them. (graphite on paper)
