    With the present trend of turning old movies and television shows into theater, Sondheim is a throw back to when the theater was art and you gladly would spend a premium to see it. A genius!

    Thanks VEe! This doodle went very quickly, maybe two minutes. I try to think mostly about proportion as opposed to rendering. In fact, the amount of lines are usually an inverse indicator of how well I think I'm doing. A fully rendered portrait means I'm trying to cover all my mistakes.

    Another reminder that I need to practice, practice, practice.
