Tomorrow, February 2, 2014, marks the seventeenth anniversary of that most fantastic of occasions: when Josh and I became a couple. We've been married almost ten years and we still like each other an awful lot.
Josh has been my most prevalent subject throughout the relatively brief history of this blog. He's a good sport. Despite the myriad of times I've drawn him, I never can seem to get it quite right.
For too long, Josh has been using as his Facebook photo a picture of himself that I drew almost a year ago. I don't like it. I can do better now... not much, but a little. At the time, I also did one of me to match. Here, too, is a case of me being able to do better.
Tonight I did some very preliminary sketches of what I hope is an example of "me doing better." These were done with my non-photo blue pencil which I then darkened in Photoshop so as to make it more visable.
I like mine better than Josh's. I need to make his head longer and his neck thicker... and he needs more of a smile to make him "Josh". Far be it from me to marry a man who doesn't smile!
