While talking to my dad the other day, I mentioned that there is a family interested in commissioning me to do a portrait of them. He asked where they lived, who they were, etc. and said, "Hmmm...have you ever drawn white people before?" Snicker.
So, I put the Turkish ladies on hold, and found this fella on wiresmash.com in a piece about hockey players over 80 years of age. I drew him to show Dad that not only can I draw white people, I can draw old guys, wrinkly guys, guys behind glass visors, and with missing teeth! So there!
On a serious note, this one was really fun to draw. He had me smiling along with him the entire time.
