Karen K. (whom I have done a drawing for before), contacted me again for another fun drawing request. This time she asked for a cartoon drawing to give as a retirement gift to a long-time community college professor, Gene L. I personally have met and spoke with Gene on several occasions and was happy to take on this commission! Karen told me that Gene loves to sail and eat lobster, so she wanted the drawing to capture his “seafaring side”.
That was pretty much all I needed to go on as I immediately pictured the cartoon scene in my head.
A few days after Gene received the drawing, he came up to me personally and told me how much he loved it. In fact he said it was framed and sitting above his mantle in the family living room for all to enjoy. That makes me smile! :)
