One Hour Watch
Lee started the One Hour Watch series in September 2014 to learn about watch design and to practice drawing techniques. The project involves creating a new original watch drawing every day in one hour or less. Most of the drawings are original designs, however the series occasionally focuses on caricatures or cartoons of iconic watches. Currently the series has reached over 2800 consecutive drawings, Lee updates his Instagram daily with new drawings.
