Oil Rig Pencil Drawing Print by Owen Garratt
This Oil RIg Drawing drawing is the second in a series
S ometimes I kind of feel like a fraud concerning these oil rig drawings. I do meticulous research (except that one time I didn’t) and old-timers in The Patch take it to mean that I’m some kind of expert…
‘You really did a great job; you nailed the lead angle of the 1953 Roosevelt Reticulating drilling bit’ a veteran oil hand will say.
‘Oh… thanks’ I’ll say.
‘Every other artist who’s tried to do rigs misses the bearing edge on the Doomahickey flange; they either put it too close to the Splammenflammer bearing or the Doodleybopperthingy belt – which is ridiculous!’ he’ll say.
‘Yes…er, we can’t have that’ I’ll say, passing a finger around my collar.
‘I even saw one thing where they tried to put a Ferguson collar upside down – and on a Tripp mount! A TRIPP MOUNT!’ he’ll say, getting a little heated.
‘Egad, really?’ I‘ll say, scanning for exits.
‘The Tripp mount wasn’t even available until 1962!’ he’ll say – more spitting than speaking.
Full Disclosure: I’m no expert. I don’t know what a Koffenpfeffer belt is or how a Spingler pipe connects to a Flaffinger pan.
But I can tell you this – I don’t make it up. If I draw it, it existed. It may be ‘wrong’, but if it’s in one of my drawings, I’ve either seen it with my own eyes, or I’ve got a photographic reference for it.
Honest. The kind of work I do is about capturing moments, not taking artistic license by imagining what a Krenulator valve would look like with a Heimenheiser gauge on it.”
