antlered animals

2 May

I have been anxiously waiting to share these finished drawings with you, and even gave you a few sneak peeks at them while in progress here and nearly finished here. My darling friend Amanda McNair commissioned them for her grandfather; her request was for “two graphite drawings of antlered animals,” making her easily one of the most trusting and enthusiastic clients I’ve ever have the pleasure of working for. It was an honour to create these detailed animal portraits for my beloved friend, and it seems that we both couldn’t be happier with the results! I’m looking forward to seeing a photo of her and her grand-pops smiling next to them, once they’re all framed up and hung in his house.
