"Jon's Love"

This is one of the last drawings in a series of this adorable little girl named Natalie. This is her with her dad Jon.

I just have to say that I don't think this drawing is very good. But I don't think I could re-draw it to look any better. See, Jon and I have known each other since we were three, and I've tried to draw this guy like 3 different times now...and the drawing never looks like him. I have a theory on this though. I don't think I can draw people I know. Especially if I've known them for long periods of time- mainly because I can still remember how they look when they were younger- not that it's how they look in the photo that I'm drawing from, but apparently I have some mental tick or something and it blocks me from being able to draw the picture right. I think parts of this drawing look like him, but I don't think it completely looks like him. I think the little girl looks right. But I could be wrong, I'm waiting on feed-back from Jon and his wife right now to see what they think of the drawing to see if they want me to re-draw it. I just can't figure out what's wrong with me when it comes to drawing people I know.
Anyway, Happy Easter everyone.

Hey! I just found your blog! I have to say that you are much better at updating yours than I am (I did just put up some Easter pics though). I love the art. I don't have any cool critique's or advice to give, but I like this art even more than I liked the doodles you used to do on post-its at the front desk. Brother those were good times...
