Rhythmic Art: Slick Idiot

Drawing to the rhythm of a live performance by industrial rock band Slick Idiot – featuring members of KMFDM – was particularly challenging. It defied all organic artistic notions that I normally bring to a drawing. I drew this to the angular aggression of their music, and added to it on a much smaller magnification of line work using a graphics tablet. The result is as jarring as it is compelling. Also included: a detail below the full-sized preview.
