   The argument over artistic talent vs effort ends with Kim JungGi. He is a uniquely gifted master artist who draws sprawling wide-angle murals, in ink with no references, relying only on images in his mind & without making any mistakes. His most recent accomplishment was setting the Guinness World Record for longest & fastest fish-eye art illustration at Odeon in Penang, Malaysia.

   To fully understand Jung Gi's genius, watch the drawing performance he did for Christie's Auction House. He travels all over the world performing his art. Typically, he works for 2-3 days on a large mural while cameras record his progress, then the time-lapse video gets upload to his YouTube channel.

   Like all Korean men, JungGi spent 2 years in military service, but in typical master style, he served in the special forces division. This may be why he is so adept at drawing vehicles & weapons.

   "I observe things all the time. I don’t take references while I’m drawing, but I’m always collecting visual resources. I observe them carefully on daily basis, almost habitually. I study images of all sorts & genres."

   "I would like to be called a cartoonist, but when I look at my portfolio I don’t see that many cartoon works. But I still like to be called a cartoonist."

   "When I was younger my aim was to astonish the fellow artists, and didn’t care too much about the public."

   "I started drawing without outlines for educational purpose. As an art school instructor I had to create real-time drawings while the students were watching me. I thought outlines took too much time so I just went on with water color not including preparatory sketch, & it worked. Since then it has become my drawing habit."
