The Bibliophile

Here’s a sketch of my friend Grahame Atkinson, a fellow artist in the town of Longmont.

I often run into Grahame at the Longmont Library.  I’d been pestering him about posing for a portrait for years, and our paths happened to cross one sunny Sunday at the library.  I had my Nikon with me, so I ambushed him into posing outside for me, holding the stack of audio books he listens to while working on his celtic art.

I then printed out the photo, but left it lying as I wasn’t sure it was the ‘right’ pose and setting for a portrait of Grahame.

Then came the holiday season, and I had a week off from work, and had nothing in mind to work on, so I pulled the photo out and did this sketch.
