This is a pencil drawing I created with the intent of using it for a postcard to advertise myself as an artist for hire. The hand is my own. The boy in the portrait I'm working on is my son, Alex. The dog in the Santa hat is our dog, Mrs. Klute. This drawing was accidentally sold at an art show by a friend (while I went to get hot dogs)in 1997 (or so) and then in 2005 I found it for sale on Ebay! So I bought my own artwork! Pretty cool!
