Ben, a guy I work with

Ben, a guy I work with
Originally uploaded by chuckrose1.
Well, I gave a lecture at work today on blogging and Flickr and that kind of stuff. I thought it would be good to show the group (about 40 people) how one uploads an image. I thought a fresh drawing would be in order.

I was in a meeting right before my talk, where I did a quick sketch of Ben. I have worked with him off and on for over ten years. So please forgive me Ben. I know your nose is not this large. But if you had just sat still during the meeting I'm sure I would have captured a better likeness. But no, you had to talk and stuff and look at others who were talking.

Maybe this will be a lesson for all of you at work that are in meetings with me. When you come into the conference room, assume a comfortable position and keep it. Put your best side towards me. You never know when you will land on a page in my sketch book.

I hope the talk went well. This may not flatter Ben, but it's a lovely line drawing - I love the restrained use of crosshatching .
