8 on 80

Charcoal on Bristol Paper
14 x 11"

This was actually the first drawing / interview we did for our forthcoming book, 8 on 80. It's pretty challenging to draw someone whilst they're talking, and the light is shifting. It was almost dark by the time we'd finished, so I had to really stay on the ball and work fast. It's amazing to meet people who really embody that whole 'Peter Pan' idea, still living life to the full well into their 80's. This guy said that he rarely skis with anyone else, because they can't keep up with him! It must be the Tahoe air....
