I have just had this image rejected by Shutterstock because it doesn't have a model release. Any suggestions?

I have just sent the following request so await their reply: "Rejected due to no model release. As the model is right handed he would have to put his head down to sign but then wouldn't be able to see the form. I suppose I could have held his head for him though. Any ideas?"

Ah, that raises a new conundrum - suppose the head is from a different body, do I need two releases?

It appears to me that the model has no hands and as a result can't sign the form for themselves. Perhaps you could sign it on their behalf as their 'guardian'!

I did think of signing one with a cross and telling them it was all he could manage holding a pen in his mouth, but their legal section might not see the funny side.

K-3 II, K-3 and a K-70 from SRS (having now relegated the K-30 /"K-50" to a backup body), & some Sigma and Pentax lenses (and a lot of old 35mm gear!)
