A few from a series of portraits for Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People issue. The categories were Leaders, Artists, Thinkers and Heroes.
The issue was mostly photos with some of my portraits as tiny spots to break things up. The drawings are pretty straight, but I was happy to get the assignment. AD Chrissy Dunleavy guided things along smoothly....

You did a smack up job for TIME. Love the portraits. I envy your ability to know where, and how much, to apply the blacks.
