James Alexander Graham: Not An Ugly Bastard.

Monday, November 3rd, 2014

The Twilight Sad played two gigs in Portland yesterday, and I had the pleasure of chatting with the guys for a bit after each. I had drawn a portrait of James, and gave it to him after the first show, a small acoustic session at a local record shop. James is absolutely gracious and kind. And contrary to what he said, he is definitely NOT “an ugly bastard”.

James Alexander Graham | The Twilight Sad frontman, drawn from a still of their Paisley Abbey performance. Finished 01 November 2014. I had the pleasure of giving this drawing to James at their in-store acoustic performance the day after I finished the work.
