Other People's Photos

I love going through old photographs of people I've never known. There's often a rich subtext of subtle discomfort or agony in forgotten snapshots or yearbook photos. The closer one looks, the more there is to see.

Click on the image below for the photo that inspired this drawing and my rough sketch. I'll try and do this every time I post something photo-derived.... at least until the cease and desist letters start rolling in!

Pretty amazing! Can you do one of these of me from say the year 1989? Perm and all?

Wow, what a great idea, drawing from old yearbooks. Can I borrow that? Really cool result, too! I hope you post a whole series of them!
