Gerald, I spoke to my father-in-law, who is a painter and a professor of art. I wanted to know if what I saw in the video bothered him as much as it did me - that is, the Marilyn Monroe drawing, which is clearly copied from a famous photograph. I think the artist is being disingenuous. I can imagine some of the simpler drawings being done while he was asleep, but the Monroe drawing struck me as being a direct copy from a photograph, and my father-in-law mentioned the same thing without my prompting. My guess is this artist discovered he could make drawings while asleep (or half-asleep) and is now embellishing his portfolio. Again, just a guess, but I'm more than a little skeptical. YMMV.
