In 1978 I met this man who was the apartment manager of a place I was wanting to rent, and he had glasses and a very long beard so I asked if he would let me take a picture for a painting idea.
He said yes and I had him use his wallet for the book, everything else other than the book in his head is exactly what he looked like, hair by hair.
