Seated Man with Still Life Props
Graphite on Paper

This is a very lean but muscular man with a very peculiar haircut. I can’t help but think of Moe of the Three Stooges. The haircut belies his rather humorless demeanor. He does not speak unless spoken to and then he answers with decided indifference. He will not do anything outside his 3-pose repertoire without being instructed with specificity. He is truly a marionette. I suppose it’s a figure artist’s dream to have a model so compliant but I sure would like to see some personality.
