ENTER THE ROBOT! STREET ART COMICS. A technological overlord "accidently' decapitates one of  thirteen guests attending the gathering, The mechanized celebration continues, undedected, as one by one the denizens are quietely assimilated. For the young businessman, this really is the last supper. This large scale india ink performance painting was made live in the streets of Toronto. I made several large paintings on Queen St, West between 2004-2008. These artworks were primarily drawn with a brush, directly in front of audiences, start to finish, without any corrections, in 3-6 hours. The symplistic imagery was  ideal for creation as performance art because I could tell instantaneous narratives at a pace suited to the short lived and highly competed for, attention of the crowds.I have since catalogue all my drawing explorations in the form of an experimental online graphic novel/magazine. The entire collection reveals a secret narration expreessing the experiences and revelations I discovered on my journey top the eye of the city.
