Michael is a college student and this pose is somewhat of a reflection of him and his generation.
I just liked the image which captures the text communications with his friends. The down side to this is that his expressive eyes are not visible, however that the eyes would be focused on the iPhone screen rather than those in the room is a part of the point.
He is a good guy and so I dared to paint him without asking for permission to use the copyright of his face. Thank you Michael.
