This drawing was part of my 1998 show at Albers Gallery in Memphis, TN. My brother posed for me, which saved me a modeling fee but cost me a pizza, a rental movie, and 2 hours for a spontaneous hypochondriac visit to an optometrist to check out my brother's (self-induced?) suddenly narrowing peripheral vision. We still got the work done. What would I do without my brother?
