Wow, yeah-- that looks nothing like Nia. But then, it's hard to capture beauty of that magnitude. Keep drawing, dammit.

Getting a likeness of Nia can be hard. In the portrait I did most recently of you and her in the office, she started out looking like a very angry Frida Kahlo, and then morphed into a decent likeness, after you helped me with her eyes.

I like that you have two different approaches. There is the dense, detailed approach with elegant composition, and the loose "I don't know what the hell I'm doing, but there's ink on the page!" approach that actually translates a frustrated, slightly scattered psychological state into graphic art very well.

I know all about months of artistic inactivity. Sometimes I crank out paintings two or three a month, then suddnly six months have passed during which I've done maybe one.

Excellent likenesses of the beautiful insides of two extraordinarily beautiful-on-the-outside people and a cat. Love you, love your work, megalove your kids, and the cat's okay too.
