Live-action

Every once in a while I do some life drawing or draw models, or coerce a friend into posing for me. Andy was gracious enough to sit in some often-needed poses for me. On the phone, texting, etc. I asked him to take his shirt off and hold it mid-way through the take-off. I was shocked to see just how wrong I had been getting it in drawing. But, I've used that sketch as reference at least twice now, most recently in "Love is the Reason." This looks very little like Andy of course. I am extrordinarily bad at drawing actual likenesses.

LOL--no, seriously, it was not a false excuse to get Andy shirtless!
