Two birthdays this week: Thoreau and Klimt

The internet told me that two birthdays of the two people whose books were on my kitchen table happened this week. I was in bed with a cough that keeps me from running and biking and pretty much everything else - so I drew them from memory - with some notes as to why I have their books on my table. 
As a result: I am reading an interesting article about Klimt and Telescopes, I am re-diving into Thoreau's diaries and I know what I should work on. Also, I think I should draw more of my art heroes. 


  1. Oh, I love how you painted Klimt like a Klimt painting!
