I recently received a message from someone that wanted me to do a drawing for a very special person in their life. They wanted it to be an anonymous gift for Pete. They told me that Pete’s son once told him: “When you love someone, it’s kinda like your heart is touching theirs”. Obviously I fell in love with this quote and instantly jumped at the chance to complete this request. In the time since I worked on this piece, I’ve began to learn a lot about Pete and he is someone who I have come to respect and admire. His story is raw and inspiring.

Here’s how Pete explains himself:

Pete on repeat, one day at a time: A Dad’s roadtrip through Alcoholism, Divorce, Wellness and Recovery. Somehow, THERE’S A BRIGHTSIDE.
