Gaye wanted an illustration of her son. She wanted me to draw a caricature of him playing poker.
Gaye said, "Although he is in college he wants to be a World Series Poker Player and playing poker is how he is supporting himself. (Not paying for college but "extra" money. What an investment for Mom and Dad! lol)"
So I went to work and this is what I came up with. I feel pretty good about how this one turned out—really good, as a matter of fact. My daughter asked "Why the purple cameo?" I said it suppose to represent the dark, smokey atmosphere of a poker room. In the drawing he's a winner, of course—making enough bank to support not only his college bill, but his parents too. (Think that will ever happen Mom?)
I'm not much in to poker, but I know that you've got to know when to hold them. And you've got to know when to fold them. etc. etc.
(Can you believe Kenny made big bucks pushing that kind of advice? Of course you've got to know when to hold them, or fold them...)
Gaye was so pleased that she wants me to do a follow up on her two other sons. I don't know if that will happen. I think she's bluffing. What do you think?
