Michael is a graphite, acrylic, and collage drawing measuring 75 1/2 in. x 45 1/4 in. and created in 2013.  Beginning from a drawing of a young guy, the image quickly shifted as I saw this particular student with his longer hair and relaxed gesture, coffee in hand, chilling on a stool, as some modern archangel, and because his name was Michael; within minutes the decision was made…he would be a winged creature, glorious, frontal, both gentle and arrogant, human and other.
