Robin Walker spends his days with a pencil in hand, filling these white sheets with sketches.
But he said he wasn't born with the skill. He discovered drawing after dying, then surviving, a car accident at the age of 17. He explains, "I did die for 1:32. I was revived, and came out of a coma ten days later."
He said he came back to life with an artistic ability. One that he wouldn't find until he was put behind bars. He said, "Yes, I had to serve a life sentence for a crime I did not commit. During that period of seven years, I did get paroled after seven years because they knew I did not do the crime, so in that respect I learned how to reproduce photographs."
He first started drawing fellow inmates and their families. Once set free, he traveled, sharing his work with the world.
Now his top goal - to beat his own world record, as the world's fastest portrait artist. He said, "I'm demonstrating each day, every person's portrait is a world record, because I'm the first artist to ever time it."
He said he aims to create a person's identity on paper. He can create a detailed portrait in about ten minutes.
He's drawing faces, and drawing in crowds. He said, "On Sundays, I'm trying to create a six hour world record."
A length of time that can yield more than 40 pieces of art, and with each person he meets, Walker's not only sharing his talent, but he's sharing his story.
Walker's current record is 38 portraits in six hours. You can catch a glimpse of his work at Eastland mall for the next month.
