This is a drawing of my older son that I made on our recent trip. I like to take along bristol paper index cards to draw on. In Europe every paper store carries them, they are roughly 4×6″ or 5×7″, are archival and cost very little.
He’s much more handsome than this drawing would suggest; his features look a little coarse here. What I like is that this pen drawing captures his mood as he drew (he was looking at another drawing on the table at that moment). It also captures his arms and hands which, like the rest of him, are becoming more muscular, he isn’t a little boy any longer.
He’s a very talented and creative artist and I am very proud of him.
