Happy b-day to three people who have really taught me a lot about art, people and life: Michael J. Ruocco, Rebecca Sugar and Liz Losey. All talented and wonderful people in different ways, who all had a major impact on me.
What they taught me was to think more about improving myself. In line with the theme of that, I woke up early this morning and drew three pictures for them in succession (on the left side): Randy the Dodo for Mike, Amethyst for Rebecca and Neuge Notothen for Liz…but upon looking at them, I realized the drawings could be better and that the three of them deserved better. So, I went ahead and did a second pass (on the right side) which I think all look significantly better.
Happy birthday to you guys and thank you for all you’ve done for me, even if you don’t know it. Keep being the same wonderful people I admire.
