Elaborate Art on an Office Whiteboard


Data manager Bill Taylor has found new ways of using everyday office supplies to reconnect with art and to jazz up his North Carolina cubicle. “Some people put up pictures and newspaper articles. Maybe calendars or stuffed animals. Perhaps I will get around to those things. For now, I just draw on the whiteboard.” He spends about 2-5 minutes a day sketching with his personal supply of dry erase markers, taking an average of about six weeks to finish each piece. His reproductions range from classic pieces by artists like Picasso, Ansel Adams, and Lichtenstein to comic book covers like Iron Man.

In the brief time he works each day, he completes a fist-sized section of the board. Then once he is finished, he says, “I’ll leave it up for a couple of days before I erase it. People ask me all the time if it’s painful to erase them when they are done. Honestly, no, because I’m always excited about starting on the next one.”
