"Are ya hungry? Can I get ya something?"

This is how I've been greeted every time I've gone to my Grandparents house for as long as I can remember. God bless Jewish grandmothers.

White Out Portrait

I've always been a fan of white out and I've always been a fan of portraits, so this piece came pretty naturally to me. I'm gearing up for a mosaic portrait of my grandfather using bottlecaps and this drawing is from the source image I'm going to use. I think it pretty accurately depicts his charm and personality. I've been planning on doing this mosaic for a few years now, but I recently became aware of the work of Molly B Right who's been doing it for a little while now. Check em' out!
