Mike Sketch Project: Mike Portrait at Brown June 1, 1990

This is a sketch of one of the first portraits I took of my brother Mike. Mike is older than I am, autistic, low functioning and has never spoken. One notable feature of Mike’s appearance is his diverging eyes.  Early in the history of this blog, I noted that I never quite knew which eye was looking at me. On my last visit* Mike’s right eye had a bluish tint of a nascent cataract. Today, Mike is blind in his left eye.  He is far away and I miss him.
