A bit of a departure. I’m not very good at “portraiture” or people, but I try, every once in a while. This is a sketch of Che Guevera, for a friend, from the famous Alberto Korda shot. While looking up good images to work from I discovered the original photograph, uncropped; in it, Che is leaning a little to his right, and the effect is one of casualness, or “ease”… amazing – tilt the portrait about 5 degrees (as it is always portrayed) and it morphs into pained nobility… 😀
