It seems a long time since I’ve been here. I thought to change the direction of work to be more familiar with the people and things around rather than be persuaded by the giants before me. For now, Liz is the most recurring so it seems only right to draw her as the first subject for this new concentration of work.
As a parent, I am their worst critic and their biggest supporter. My daughter can be the most beautiful person on the planet and sometimes I wonder what planet she is on. Out of respect for the blog and a few dollars, she has agreed to pose for this post. She has an exceptional smile and reminds me how important it is to ‘keep it real’ despite the obsession with her hair. As a kid, she was driven. I was in awe at her dedication to each morning. She has a genuine soulful respect for family, food and dogs. I have always been bewildered by her love of sporting events and she has always been confused by my attraction to art but occasionally we laugh at the same things and more rarely meet at the same music.
