a wonderful and fascinating thing i've found in my experience is the act of drawing a person's portrait as a way of getting to know them. as one who is in love with human beings and their quirks and passions--but often too shy to actually talk to them--it is sometimes the only way i know how to be intimate with people. to study their faces...in all their beauty and imperfection...likely by the time i am done i will know the subtleties and curves more than even they do.

there is nothing else like it in the world.
