Portrait of an ex-Radiator...

Just a crosshatch sketch of Ed Volker with a bit of a wash!
Years ago, I planned to do this incredible painting of the New Orleans Radiators. I still have that painting but I can't decide if it is half started or half finished. I have a lot of those kind of over ambitious paintings. My intentions are good, but I get impatient and shelve it or, I get a real paying job and have to put the piece aside...

For like, Forever!

So this is just a mindless doodle I did from one of the photographs I shot for that illustration. He was much younger then, as I was when I took this shot.
