Showcase 5: Nate Giorgio: A rare look inside (1/5)

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to get a look at Nate's sketches of MJ?  What about the 100's of them that have never been seen before?  Ever wondered what they talked about?  What Nate was thinking while he was sketching?  How was Nate able to capture the very essence of Michael with a few strokes of his golden brushes? 

While these questions may not be answered here, this week's series is a very brief and exclusive opportunity!  We will be posting a photograph-a-day of rarely seen sketches, taken directly from Mr. Giorgio's sketchbooks.  These are posted, with permissions, for the express purpose of MJ fans to enjoy.  So mark your calendars and tell your MJ friends.  You won't want to miss these through Friday! 

Without delay, here is #1 in this 5-part series.  MJ fans, please be sure to thank Mr. Giorgio in the comments (or email me  Most of all, ENJOY!
