I had been itching to draw a student at my school for months. So my friend Todd and I asked him permission to have his picture taken and draw it. Todd and I imposed a deadline on one another -- to get it done between March 18 and April 14 (our respective birthdays!). I cannot wait to see Todd's results. Here's my take on it. If I planned my drawings better, the gutter of the sketchbook wouldn't end up slicing Bloom's eye vertically, but planning a drawing is what can potentially turn me off. 2B "fat" Cretacolor graphite in Moleskine.
