*Eldon, a student here at F.A.A. Mölndal, is another bright spot in this years group. I was told a story about this drawing he has been working on for over a year now. The thing is done in layers, sheet after transparent sheet and all in brilliant detail. It has attained a status in my imagination that, should I ever see it, will be hard to live up to... but I really want to see it. Eldon is precisely the type of person who would do such a thing, like a character in a Tom Waits song ("whats he building in there...?"). Secretly building something and hiding it from the world.
