    Link: Extraordinary Ambidextrous Drawing Skills - Local street artist shows off his awesome ambidextrous drawing skills. We wonder what else he`s ambidextrous at.

    I do not understand why this vid is making the rounds on the net. This guy`s art skills suck balls. A lot of people could do that crap with two hands.

    so he erases it quickly before people can tell that it wasn`t that great of a sketch to begin with and the only things he can draw ambidextrously are mirror images. its a neat talent, but not really all that special. also his "dirty" drawing of a bird was done on SNL like 9 years ago.

    I agree and disagree with Loxen, I really don`t get how this is so extraordinary, extra - ordinary, maybe. This IS quite simple to do with both hands, I could do it when I was 7. Although, this guy is pretty talented. He can draw pretty decent drawings quickly and without going back and erasing, etc. but that`s my opinion.

    As someone who does art on the side (drawing, painting, sculpting, jewelry making, etc.), I can tell you that free drawing (no erasing, no tracing, no looking at an original) with your dominant hand alone is a real B*TCH to learn!

    Add drawing upside down, drawing with your non-dominant hand, AND MIRRORING (the technique of drawing one half of the image with one hand and the opposite half with the other hand) AT THE SAME TIME...and you have EXTRAORDINARY TALENT!!

    I`m not religious by any stretch of the imagination, but people who can do this sort of thing are the closest to having "god-given" talent that I`ve ever seen.

    And for the people that think the stuff this guy can do is easy: 1) I want to see YOU do it. 2) GO SUCK IT!

    I don`t have any art skills whatsoever, so I`m impressed with his ability to draw well. However, I can mirror write. Write the same thing with both hands at the same time, left hand in mirror of the right. It`s very simple for me, possibly more simple than for others because of my dyslexia.

    So, while I`m impressed with his speed drawing, I have to say that I think the mirror drawing part is probably a lot easier than people think.

    Remember, I don`t have any art skill, so I`m not saying he sucks, or that it`s easy, or whatever. I just don`t think it`s as hard as people think it is.

    While it`s not a true definition of ambidexterity (which really is doing two COMPLETELY different things with both hands at once - like writing with one hand and drawing with the other simultaneously - not just mirror-imaging), this guy has a lot of talent. Drawing anything upside down requires tons of practice, and it`s obvious that he`s done a LOT of practicing.

    And for those of you who think this is easy... sit down to a table with a sketch pad in front of you and try copying his images - upside down, with both hands. Then submit the video of you doing it to I-A-B,so we can see if you`re in this guy`s league.

    Well, damn, if you`re serious that`s just retarded. I`m offended on behalf of the art out that I DO find skilled and DO feel is far better than anything I could do. Honestly... mind blowing. Its juvenile doodles, what the hell are you guys smoking...

    I`d be more impressed if he could do 2 different pictures. All this really requires is a little practice. One hand mimmicks the other. 2 different pictures at once would be a step beyond the average person.

    i don`t understand why people are slagging him off - for one thing if i saw someone doing that in the street i`d be more inclined to give some change than someone sitting on the floor smelling of alcohol, surely the purpose of his little exercise, and for another, from the video it doesnt look like he sits there claiming to be an artist of unparalleled talent - why do people feel the need to say he`s not great, when he doesn`t claim to be anyway?
    enjoy it for what it is, if you want to see the `most talented` artists then go to a gallery, don`t look at the bloke in the middle of the street!

    What the hell is wrong with you people, he`s doing wicked symmetrical drawings, upside down, in quick succession. He certainly impressed me, and unless you can do something as creative as that, I advise that you shut the fluff up.

    Ok Loxen so we just wait for a video of you doing the same thing but much better. I can understand that for someone that is ambidextrous this can seem easy like to breath but for the rest of people this performance is just impressive, i don`t understand why you are pushed to minimize what he do.Btw show us what you can do and maybe we can change minds.

    Practice the same few images over and over again for a few weeks, and most people could do as well.

    No! This is not ambidextrous drawing, this is mirror drawing and it`s not that hard. (Seriously, try it yourself; try writing your name while simultaneously writing it backwards with the other hand (easiest for right handing people).

    Want try ambidextrous drawing? Check out the genius comedian Demetri Martin. He can draw two separate things at the same time.
