The Electric Pencil.

The Electric Pencil.

Mujer 1



I received one of the latest issues of Raw Vision Magazine and what a wonderful surprise I found in it. The mysterious case of an artist known as The Electric Pencil. He or she (this artist’s identity is still a mystery) created an album with 283 drawings that was rescued from a trash heap in 1970.

The artist was a patient at State Lunatic Asylum in Nevada Missouri around 1910. I am fascinated with this case and with the beauty of the art. To learn more about it visit the official web-site of The Electric Pencil.
