This Artist Has Just Started A 5-Year Project To Draw EVERYTHING In His Grandpa’s Shed.

When Lee John Phillips' grandfather died, he realized that his grandmother was keeping his deceased grandfather's work shed as a mausoleum in his honor. The shed was the typical space of a handy guy with a lifetime full of tools and supplies, and Phillips' grandmother didn't want to part with it.

That's when Phillips came up with this amazing idea. Instead of leaving his grandfather's things frozen in time, he decided to draw each and every last object in the shed. He estimates that it will take him about five years to draw all 100,000 items, which include, nuts, bold, pain cans, and countless other items.

He's been posting his drawing on Instagram as they're complete, and the resulting sketches are fascinating to look at. See the homage to Phillips' grandfather below.

Lots of keys. Tough to draw straight in ink. Never missed a pencil so much.
