For my daughter's birthday in April, 2018, I gave her a hand-drawn framed portrait of herself and her husband, my son-in-law Gabe Griffith. She was delighted!
I drew this in February and March, well before the birthday, and it wasn't easy to keep it under wraps. Once, both she and her husband walked into my art studio and I had some of the work out in plain sight. I smoothly slid into position to stand between them and the artwork and managed to cover it in time.
I love surprising people! Stay tuned, another surprise is coming within the week!

Technical pens were the mainstay of the designer and illustrator's craft before the development of computer graphics. Now, many art enthusiasts are rediscovering the technical pen because its handiwork stands out almost magically against the bland precision of computer rendered graphics. My work has always been produced with the best technical pens and durable India inks available.
