This is a drawing in graphite and color pencil (Prismacolor) on a scrap of packaging cardboard, 4x5 in.
This is the first of these "recent" drawings, and the first drawing I have done in a long time. I drew
this as a reward (not the work itself, the act of drawing it) to myself for having gotten started on
"climbing my personal Everest". A friend critiqued the piece until, according to his estimate, I got
the glutes "perky" enough.
