Brenda, (Who seems to be in the habit of calling me "Ricky"), came to me with a request for an illustration of her husband, Chris.
She said that Chris is a big Iowa Hawkeyes fan, as well as a Kansas City, Chief's fan. I got to choose which team to use in the illustration and so I decided on the Chiefs. Some how it seemed like the logical choice to me - don't ask me why. As you can tell from their photo, Brenda and Chris are a good looking couple, and you know how I hate to illustrate good looking people. But I suffered through and we "got ur done."
The addition of their Pomeranian pup was Brenda's idea. I thought it added a lot of fun to the drawing.
Brenda is planning ahead because she said that this drawing is intended to be a Father's Day gift. (Which, if you're thinking about an illustration for Father's Day, I highly recommend because I fear that I could be getting really busy around then. So, get your orders in early boys and girls.)
Brenda said that she is not letting Chris see my blog. So it was safe to post this illustration. I don't know how I should feel about that. I mean, denying him the joy of taking in all the fine, high art on my blog? I guess that it's ok. After all, we're talking about an expression of her love here. (Oh gawsh!)
Thank you Brenda for allowing me to create this gift for you. I appreciate all your comments on the old blog, and you're welcomed to call me "Ricky" anytime. After all, it's what my mother first called, and she's a pretty terrific lady.
And if you haven't gotten the hint yet, go check out Brenda's blog NOW!!!
