Sunday Sketches (A special "Jack")

It's a quick one this week as Michael and I are about to head out of town for his mother's funeral next week. We've got a lot going on here, including the oldest son graduating from college today! Lots of great food and yummy cakes!

The illustration above is from a recent custom order I did for a client, of her grandson, "Jack". It took me just under two weeks to sketch and color in - and it turned out wonderfully! I couldn't be happier with the results and my client is very, very happy as well!

With that said, I will visit everyone when able.  I'll also try to post the following week for Sunday Sketches, if possible. If not, we'll resume the following week. Thank you for all of your love, support and beautiful thoughts regarding Michael's mother passing. It means a lot to us. Especially, Michael.

  6. Sorry to hear about Michael's mother. Now the time you spent in England last year with the family must be even more special to you.

    The Jack illustration is fantastic, and of course your client is thrilled with it.

  7. Sorry to hear of Michael's mother's passing. Take care of each other on your trip and may there be moments woven with good memories and fond recollections too. And congratulations to your son! His road is just opening before him and may each day be filled with a greater learning and much love.

  8. So sorry for your family's loss and at the same time there is joy in a child graduating from college. Your emotions have to be flying in every direction. I love your Jack and can imagine how your customer must be thrilled with it. You seem to be burning your candle at both ends. A break is probably welcome and badly needed ... see you in two weeks :) Rest when you can your body is taking an emotional beating ...
