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 firstname.lastname@example.org) Most of all, ENJOY!

This was the first rough that Nate was developing for cover of The Official Michael Jackson Opus, before he went with the one that adorns it now.
