Alex Rust, Captain of the sailboat Bubbles
Alex Rust
pen and ink
2014

I drew this portrait of Alex after he died at age 28. He was a remarkable man. A huge risk taker. My son, Topher Cochrane, made a documentary movie, Chasing Bubbles, about his friend, Alex, who, at age 25 quit his job at the Chicago Board of Trade, taught himself how to sail, bought a boat and sailed around the world in a couple of years, meeting all kinds of fascinating folks. Watch the movie on youtube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibP5IQxId34. Then, quit your job and do what you love.
