I am so happy to say that I finally finished my most recent drawing, “Destruction of Troy.” It took me around 1350 hours to complete over the course of around three years. This is by far the greatest achievement of my life so far.

The drawing itself is drawn freehand with a mechanical pencil. It is 10 feet long by 3 feet tall.

It is a depiction of my interpretation of the walls and gates of Troy as they are being destroyed by the Trojan War. The monster to the right of “Destruction of Troy” represents the “Horse” and it is destroying the city. The locks on the gates each represent a different Greek god on the Greek side of the Trojan war, symbolizing that the gates betrayed the city by letting the horse in. I have architectural entities floating in the sky as well, each one representing a Greek god on the Trojan side of the war as though they are lamenting the city. I have the whole thing crumble down into the ruins found today at the hypothetical site of the Trojan War. I also hid various messages in the drawing coded in a language that I created that combines my favorite mathematical sequence (the Fibonacci sequence) with sheet music.
