I was noticed the man in this drawing because he greatly reminded me of someone I knew in graduate school, minus the beard. Although my grad school acquaintance did not have locks, his hair was styled such that his coif had much the same silhouette. And he too had red hair, though the guy I knew was a bit more freckly. He was a nice guy and I often wonder whatever happened to him. He was really smart and funny and talented.
To my old grad school acquaintance: if you recognize yourself in this description (and sort of in the drawing, as well), drop me a note at email@example.com and tell me how you’re doing.
