this drawing i kept coming back to over the past 2 years , it was a piece i always wanted to try , an old man lots of hair , but more than that , the emotion .
this photo drew me in because we get to make up our own idea of who he is . some say he looks exactly like santa claus , some say their grandad and to others he looks homeless . but more than that we get to make up our own story for him too , is he sad ? is he deep in thought ? is he simply looking down and reading or is he longing for a lost love ?
