Steve McQueen - Slater Missouri

A sketch based upon observing published photos and I added the T-shirt . Steve live several years of his youth on his uncle Thompson's hog farm in Slater, Missouri before jumping train with a carnival act performing in Slater and headed west ending up in Hollywood. Slater is about 100 miles from my studio.
