For Aunt Charlene
Finally I've finished one of the "projects" and had it submitted to the publisher a couple of days ago, I just got a text today saying that it's a "GO" but still requires some minor and final touch-ups, I can't wait to have that chapter closed.
Right after submitting that "project", I started sketching one of the lovely pairs of my wife's aunts and uncles. I call them Uncle Lee and Aunt Charlene, and they've been nothing but kind and warm to me as the new family member. Aunt Charlene saw some of my sketches 2 years ago, and wanted to asked me to draw something for her and she had forgotten about it ever since. So finally I asked her to pick something, and she picked the picture of her and Uncle Lee taken during my wedding reception. She's so excited when I told her that I was going to commission the drawing on Tuesday after Tanna's grandpa's funeral. I finished it today, and gave it to her today, and I believe that made her day because I lost count of the times she said "I love it!" and "Perfect!" =) And I kept telling her, I was just playing with my sketchbook and pencils. She will try to have it framed and give it to Uncle Lee as Father's Day present from their little Yorkie dog, Bandit ^^ See why I couldn't resist it when she asked me to draw her something?
Thank you all for your comments, encouragements and support on the last drawing. Printing shop is still slow on my prints, but I'll keep pushing. I hope you enjoy the steps above too.
