titanic1Graphite on Drawing Paper, 1998

This was my first commissioned work.  One of Mr. Smith's 7th grade students wanted me to draw a photo he had.  I originally agreed to do it for $35, but as I progressed along in the picture, I realized I needed to ask for more.  I showed him the picture when it was 50% done, and asked for $70.  He agreed without hesitation.  I kinda' miss this piece, even though I got sick of the movie.  It was my first attempt at photo-realism and careful shading.
