hat's this all about? It's an ambitious personal project to make a portrait of a someone I've never met before in my life every day for the span of one year.

Stranger 97: Derrick

Did I spell your name right?  This guy was one of the most enthusiastic. I have a profound respect for his profession in the medical research field.  My brother is a clinical research physician and my father used to work for a major pharmaceutical sales company.  I was spending more time with him than normal and mentioned that I didn't want to keep him if he was on the way to something more important.  No no, he said, [and I paraphrase] I'm always happy to help out an artist in any way I can.  Good apple this one.  Good apple.
