Jefferson waller is not your typical
on-a-quest, drawing-for-food, traveling artist. Waller is the midst
of a cross - country tour to create the world's longest continuous
drawing, sketching out two - foot long segments of whatever inspires
him on his travels. The drawing is entitled "Finding Nevermore"
and the traveling project is as much about creating a work of art
as it is an inner journey to find out where he belongs.
Waller's drawing currently stands at over 100 feet, and includes
everything from a sketch of Earnest Hemingway's home in Key West
to a self portrait of him drawing by flashlight under an overpass.
The project started in Disney World, and Waller has plans to visit
key landmarks, including Steven King's house in Main, Elvis Presley's
Graceland in Tennessee, the San Francisco Bridge and Bruce Lee's
tomb in Seattle. His main stops are planned from dreams and visions,
while others are just scenes or people he meets along the way.
Waller's quest brought him to Wilmington because Bruce Lee's son,
Brandon Lee, died here while filming The Crow.
