Rand Corporation has been featuring notable individuals in their calendar since 1962. All the portraits have been accompanied by quotations from each character. I was chosen to do 2017 calendar for Rand. It was a lot of fun and I have been inspired by many of these characters. I hope you enjoy this series as much as I do.
