"This drawing comes from a series of drawings that spotlight luminaries from the fabled Belle Époque. As of this writing, I've completed drawings of Rodin, Picasso, Dalí, and Paul Klee, etc. Doing these drawings has given me the opportunity to work in brush again. I consider this drawing to be one of the finest that I've ever done, and I and am quite proud of it. It's well designed, finely drawn, and it showcases my unique skill with a brush."
