Asked by Rolling Stone's, Matthew Cooley, to work on a full page portrait of Bill Gates... first thing I thought... Tim O' Brien must be slammed with work. As we all know, he's the man at RS for this kind of assignment. So in my head, Tim's good fortune to be busy turned into my good opportunity to work on an important portrait. Tim can correct me in a comment if I'm wrong.
I had a great experience working on it. The Interview with Gates is interesting as well.
