This is Nick. He and my son have been friends since the second grade. As I'm writing this, he's with him in the living room hanging out right now. 

The beginning of their friendship happened to coincide with the end of my first marriage. The house I moved into during the separation and first couple of years after the divorce was right next door to Nick and his family. We couldn't have been luckier. Nick and Alex played together for hours building forts in Trollum, playing Viva Pinata (a video game), and engaging my friends and I in many Nerf wars. They forged a lasting friendship and I'm crazy proud of the young men they are becoming.

I sketched this in my Handbook Grand Portrait sketchbook with pencil and watercolor and a little spray paint and then "repaired" it in Artrage.

Just another quick note to say (before it goes away from this first page) that just like the others up I've enjoyed seeing this one & the story behind it!
