Glyptotek Drawings 
This drawing represents the lengths to which Dine searched for an opaque background, resulting in the print version in a rich, inky intaglio print devoid of white space. To create such a dense image, Dine first drew the portrait in charcoal and covered the entire background with spray paint. He then used a variety of media, including chalk, charcoal, and liquid varnish to fill in any translucent holes.
