Picasso and son

I just ran across this photo randomly and had to draw it. It strikes me as an amazing composition, almost like circles within circles. Every fiber of Picasso's body seems to be orbiting around his kid. All the lines in his face and those tendons on his neck are converging on that perfect, circular blob of baby boy. I may have failed to convey any of this in the drawing, because I was having too much fun covering every square inch with tiny lines.
