I’ve been wanting to draw this portrait for a long time. I just never really had the confidence to start it. Not because of skill, but rather because of subject matter. I think a little part of me died with this man. I feel like I grew up with him. When I heard the news of his suicide, I felt like I lost a brother. I never knew him, nor had I met him, but I feel he was very much a part of my life.
I don’t think I will ever be able to part with this piece.
