She looks happier here...


This drawing is based on a picture of my Grandmother at age 4 or so. I got a whole mess of photographs of her family in Manhattan from the 20s and 30s. I find them endlessly inspiring!

I cut it close to the wire here, because I'm busy the rest of the night. You know, me and my glamorous social life! Sometimes it's good to have a time limit, and not to fuss over every detail. I had to scramble to get the basic idea down and not expect perfection.
