Switcherace

22" x 30", watercolour, 1994, private collection

If I remember correctly, Lennox was a freelancer, which meant he worked on an on-call basis with whichever crew called him in for a shift (I started out that way, too, until I was put on a crew permanently once a position opened up). Also, IIRC, Lennox was fully trained on several positions, but the one I used for his portrait was as a switcher (AKA technical director) since his nickname was "Switcherace" (like Liberace) because of his skills. He certainly wasn't this flamboyant in real life, but we did have fun devising this scenario.
