There's a lot I like about this one!

Including those lovely hands - and the way you put your polka dots in perspective.

It's the little things that impress me.

Ah, that turned out great, I love the hands, and the piece as a whole. And let me say it as well, Happy birthday to your father!!!

I think you made him look more like George Lucas than anything. Unless he considers Mr. Lucas a turd, then we're both right.

Excellent drawing none-the-less. The arms are my favourite part.

In addition to the great colors, I enjoy your use of non-rectangular paper shapes. Why can't we have more greeting cards in round-like forms?

The young woman and her father is not transparently organized and atomized to reveal the mysteries of mass and light in nature, but pushes toward the foreground, so that one is intensely aware of the interlocked jostling of shapes, the jostling of consciousness, of conscience. The light blues and greens of the young woman's translucent skin push against the dark reds and browns of her 80s metal mane , forcefully meeting at the center focused by her hand and hanging skein of hair. The diagonal of the orange curtains descends through the swoop of her arm, joining the two halves, back and front, right and left. Her left arm enters and vaguely caresses the fathers shoulder but is ultimately cut off, for the woman's arm has snaked up from out of frame. One tends not to notice since our attention is drawn to the daddy person in the foreground.

I LIKES IT!
