Graphite Drawings on Commission

When I draw a subject, I work from photographs, which in most cases I prefer to take myself.  It is important, if possible, that I meet the subject and even, during the course of the project, have them pose for a short time to perfect certain features and to get to know them.  This will allow their essence to come forth, although it will appear even if I do not meet them.
