"Those Who Live, Live Off the Dead."

To get back in the swing of things after then holiday, I was looking for something interesting for a quick sketch and came across this classic photo by Man Ray of Theatre of Cruelty founder, Antonin Artaud.  I'll admit that apart from dabbling in some of his writing, I don't know much about this legendary creator in avant garde theater.  Still, the portrait was a striking one, and I couldn't help but try to set something down in ink.  The nose, however, threw me off and I'm afraid the lower part of his face juts out farther than I intended...but I was pleased enough with the results that I present it, despite its faults.
