The creation of Eric Beltz’s Deep Shit


Probably my favorite artist working in Pencil, California-based Eric Beltz has a new drawing in the group show Superfine at Morgan Lehman which opens tonight.  The piece, Deep Shit, took 2 months and 22 days to create and is “A tender scene of murder and dismemberment…”  Here, we created an animation of its creation.  So dope.
