BAKER, Calif. -- An artist who chained his legs together to draw a picture of the image hopped 12 hours through the desert after realizing he lost the key and couldn't unlock the restraints, authorities said Wednesday.Trevor Corneliusien, 26, tightly wrapped and locked a long, thick chain around his bare ankles Tuesday while camping in an abandoned mine shaft about five miles north of Baker, San Bernardino County sheriff's Deputy Ryan Ford said."It took him over 12 hours because he had to hop through boulders and sand," Ford said. "He did put on his shoes before hopping."The artist, who is from the area, often sketched images inside mines in the Southwest. He had finished his drawing Tuesday when he realized he didn't have the key.Corneliusien finally made it to a gas station and called the sheriff's department, which sent paramedics and deputies with bolt cutters. His legs were bruised but he was otherwise in good health, Ford said.The artist did not have a listed phone number and could not be reached for comment.And the drawing?"He brought it down with him," Ford said. "It was a pretty good depiction of how a chain would look wrapped around your legs."
