Breaking Bad is an American Television Drama Series set and produced in Albuquerque New Mexico and is a story of Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a struggling high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer at the beginning of the series. He turns to a life of crime, producing and selling methamphetamine with a former student, Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), with the aim of securing his family's financial future before he dies.
Skinny Pete (played by Charles Baker) is Jesse's friend. He served time in prison with Tuco and introduced him to Jesse. Jesse recruits Skinny Pete to deal meth, although Pete is on probation. He is mugged by two addicts, forcing Jesse to get the money and product back. He may be borderline illiterate, spelling "street" wrong and having trouble reading his own writing. After Badger is nearly arrested and Combo is killed, Pete quits dealing for Jesse, fearing being sent back to prison and for his own safety. He eventually decides to sell meth for Jesse again, albeit on a smaller scale. He attends Narcotics Anonymous meetings with Badger. After following the program together and staying clean, they eventually relapse when Jesse tempts them with meth. After a few days of heavy meth use they leave Jesse's house. In the Season 5 episode '"Hazard Pay", Skinny Pete is shown to be a talented pianist.

I have gotten to know Charlie Baker this past year from a Mutual Artist Friend of mine and I think he such a down to earth cool guy who was kind enough to let me try and capture his look on paper in Graphite - This piece shown is the Original Work I did for him. Charlie Baker owns the Original.
