After his invention of the telephone, Alexander Graham Bell founded Bell Telephone Company in 1882, which (to make a long story short) later became American Telephone and Telegraph Company â€“ or AT&T. Today, their corporate headquarters are in Dallas, TX.
I was recently commissioned to create graphite portraits of Bell and about two dozen additional people of significance to their history. The drawings were reproduced on metal plaques and are hanging in their lobby and executive boardroom. Here is a partial sampling of the original drawings.
