Portrait Night 5/10 (Auguste Escoffier)

I did an initial drawing of Escoffier that I later decided was too literal for my tastes–especially if it was going to be in some sort of card set, minicomic, or poster with the Grant Achatz image. For what it’s worth, here it is undoctored, right out of my sketchbook:

If you’d like to suggest a #PortraitNight subject, you can do so either via the comments section here, or via my Twitter.
