Drawing a Perfect Circle

Alexander Overwijk, a teacher from Ottawa (Canada), is one of the fastest Circle Drawers in the world. In this video, he draws a close-to-perfect 3 foot wide circle in one second. Even if he did not win the seemingly non-existent World Freehand Circle Drawing Competition, his talent is still impressive.

I feel that it is amazing that the can do that, but more amazing still is the camaraderie that he has with his students..



Wide Circles
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
We had an international circle drawing competition here in Ottawa recently. The video is posted on youtube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1J5ANnq0T8 and features, of course, Mr. Overwijk.

@chickenbeaver: teachers everywhere are probably underpaid but Mr. Overwijk is at least our department head, so you could rest assured that he can likely eat at least once every other night. And yes, I did just say that to craftily imply that I had Mr. O as a teacher.
