Over the past year I have been asked to do commissions for those who served our country. One of those pieces which turned out well was for a close friend of mine that his moms father, his grandfather, served with the Marines in the Pacific during WWII. He asked for a pencil rendering of his grandfather for a gift which he would liked framed and used as part of a tribute to him. I gladly accepted and enjoyed doing the research, drawing, and presenting the final piece to the client.
He told me that it was a success and sent over a picture of the finished tribute piece on the wall.
