A MEXICAN artist has completed the world’s largest pencil drawing, a quarter of a mile long, and has finally won his place in the Guinness Book of Records.
The obsessed artist neglected his health while working on his project and was hospitalised seven times for various illnesses while he completed his masterpiece including dehydration, kidney problems and heart palpitations.
Filemon Trevino completed his work after 13 months but had to wait for his place in the record books until someone sponsored him for the 600 US dollar entrance fee to the Guinness Book of Records. His representation of the heart and circulatory system took over 6,000 hours to finish and is now displayed at Regiomontana University in Monterrey.
