Fresno Fa­mous

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Insight -

is an on­go­ing series from The Fresno Bee, done in col­lab­o­ra­tion with artist Mar­cos Do­rado.

It is a pro­file and por­trait; mix­ing mod­ern me­dia (that in­cludes the so­cial kind) with old-world art in a way that is quaint, al­most to the point of irony.

How of­ten do you see por­trai­ture any­more, much less in a news­pa­per or some­one’s Face­book feed?

Do­rado is a full-time artist who works with live mod­els (some of whom have been nude), rather than photo ref­er­ence. Which means, the re­al­is­tic draw­ings you’ll see come from hours spent with his sub­jects. “My in­spi­ra­tion is to cel­e­brate those who are serv­ing our com­mu­nity in a mean­ing­ful way and/or those who have unique sto­ries,” Do­rado says..

On that front, we’ll need help from our read­ers and in the up­com­ing months will be ask­ing for sug­ges­tions from the com­mu­nity.
