I was watching a clip of a dreadful interview with a geezer named Ralph Reed and became so fascinated by his sinister features that I had to sketch him. For someone raised on British TV, I found the bias shown by the chairwoman quite shocking. The clip can be found on Sam Harris' site: he's the author of "The End of Faith" which is on my Xmas list.
I was trying out a new sketchbook made of some trendy hand-made Indian paper from Paperchase, but found the paper to be almost unusable...an expensive mistake.
