Obsessive-Compulsive Drawings by Ed Loftus

They are not photographs, and they’re not Photoshopped. These are painstakingly precise graphite drawings by Oakland-based artist Ed Loftus, whose OCD actually works to his advantage when it comes to creating works of art. So what if it takes him five long months to make just one piece? It took Michaelangelo four years to paint the Sistine Chapel. Maybe most artists suffer from OCD.
