Million Trees
2007 - 2009
 

Created the drawings  called "PROMETHEUS" series for the Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villarraigosa Million Trees L.A initiative.

When the artist was developing an idea around the Million Trees Project, he found that the oldest living tree known and documented is in California. The tree is nicknamed Methuselah, is a Great Basin Bristlecone Pine, Pinus longaeva, and is found in the White Mountains of California.

It was approximately 4,789 years old when it was sampled in 1957 its exact location is currently undisclosed to the public as a protection against vandalism.

An older specimen, which was named Prometheus, 4,844 years old and was mistakenly cut down in 1964. This was enough to fire up the artist to become involved in this project and it also led to the title of the series.
