More pastels

Here I have made a portrait of Prof. Chomsky, from a still photo of his lecture on terrible conditions in the Gaza strip, at MIT's Wong auditorium at MIT, January 2009. He had just turned 80 at that point.

I wish my portrait adequately showed my respect for the man and his work, but I don't have the skills for that.

This is done on A3-size paper, of an unfortunate red color (the podium background was similarly red, I thought I should try to capture that). During fixing, the paper bulged up, not being of good quality.
