My amazing Grandfather passed away Monday at the age of 102 (!!). He was an incredible man....born in England in 1911, he came to the U.S. at age 11 and served in the U.S. Army as a young man. Until he passed away he was the oldest living AMVET in the nation. He was sharp as a tack until the very end, and loved his family with all of his heart. We will miss him so much!

This is one of my favorite photographs of my grandfather as a young man....and I wanted to try and translate it into a sketch. While it isn't as perfect as I had hoped it would be (I guess you can say he's been "fae-ized" )... I do hope I have at least captured his essence.

Love you, "Pop"! πŸ’—
