Iz Kamakawiwo'ole


Today’s mini portrait is of Iz Kamakawiwo'ole. For someone who had the most infectious and contagious smile, there are only a few photos of him doing so! I found one, but it was pretty blurry, but I did my best. 5x7″ (ish) colored pencils, watercolors, markers, and a bit of white paint. Enjoy! 

One of my favorite moments in teaching, was when I started playing a youtube playlist of his music to my first graders while they were working on seascapes, and you could hear a pin drop while they were working. They were so chilled out and so mesmerized by his soft and gentle voice it was the most beautiful and surreal moments in my time teaching. They loved him.
