"Drawing of Alexander Calder"
From a tiny 362x450 pixel photo of Calder taken in 1927
On 14x17 paper, ink pen, cropped to 13 x 16 in original
I was seeking drawing inspiration, and thought I might find it by looking through Wikipedia lists. I noted that July 22nd is Calder's birthday. He would have been 112 if he hadn't passed in 1976, one day after my eighteenth birthday.
In keeping with the linear quality of much of his artwork, I aimed for a linear approach to the drawing.
