By now it seems like everyone in my drawing class knows about my sketchbook project and a goal of 40 portraits. My classmates and even the teacher oblige me and let me photograph them for portraits, be that a bad hair day or not. Some with quiet resignation and a sigh, some with a smile and jokes about fame and Louvre, others informing me that they are making a great exception for the sake of Art. Be that what it may, people are helping me out and I appreciate that.
Arturo wasn’t all that thrilled about an impromptu photoshoot during a break between classes, but being a kind man and a true artist he felt obliged. Here he is studying figure sketches he has just done. They appear not to his liking… I find them to be pretty good.
