Gregory Blackstock: an inspiration

Blackstock's Collections:
The Drawings of an
Artistic Savant
GREGORY BLACKSTOCK: An inspiration Part of my inspiration for my image-a-day project is the work of the autistic savant and genius Seattle artist Gregory Blackstock. He is a draftsman, an artist, a compiler and chronicler of everyday items, animals, birds, airplanes, tools, and much, much more.

Blackstock can look at an item once or twice, and reproduce it exactly. That he is autistic, and has found national and international markets for his art is tribute to its power and is one of the wonders of this world. His is a genius that I admire.

Please look at this jaw-dropping work, and think about purchasing Blackstock's Collections for an artist in your life..
