Artist Celebrates Late Grandfather by Drawing the 100,000+ Items in His Tool Shed

Artist Lee John Phillips is commemorating his late grandfather in a heartwarmingly creative way. When the illustrator’s beloved relative passed away, he left behind an old shed containing over 100,000 individual tools and trinkets. To celebrate these remnants, his grandfather, and the place where he continually tinkered away, Phillips has decided to take on an immense project. He’s determined to document every single item that’s housed within the shed’s four walls.

So far, the artist has drawn close to 4,000 pieces and he’s only just begun. He imagines that it will take him about five years to finish the entire project. Even though this is a tremendous undertaking, Phillips’ persistence represents the love and admiration that he has for his grandfather. Viewers can witness this same enthusiasm on the artist’s Instagram, which is where he posts his incredibly meticulous sketchbook drawings.
