1. Charles Steffen, Alisha Nude, Experiment in Nude Figure Drawing 1994

    "Charles spent most of his time drawing, usually producing one to three or more drawings every day. When he was not drawing he was pacing from the kitchen to the living room in the family home smoking a cigarette and drinking either coffee in the morning or beer in the afternoon. His subjects were those he knew in his limited sphere: the woman at the bank who cashed his social security checks, a neighbor, his mother, who in her later years was confined to a wheelchair and then to bed, and flowers and plants from the yard.  Most drawings were done from memory: showgirls from a bar he frequented while in school, a woman he loved before he went to Elgin [Alisha], and scenes from the State Hospital. Although he often drew the same subjects over and over, he also experimented by creating drawings that merged the human form with plants and tar or tobacco stains he saw on the sidewalks of the neighborhood and distorting and combining male and female features.”
