There’s a Guy in Claremore Who Does THIS with Napkins. Amazing.

braumsWe received an email recently here at moreClaremore that was pretty interesting. It turns out that there’s a guy right here in town named Bill Meade.

He’s been around for a while, and he draws portraits of random people he sees.

Mr. Meade has been doing this for more than 20 years. Usually, his subjects are spotted at a restaurant, and a napkin makes a handy canvas.

Sandi, the woman who emailed us, attached a drawing of her that Mr. Meade drew in 1994.

If you have a drawing by this Claremore artist, won’t you please share? Also, we’d love to meet him!
