It's been a while since I've drawn a face. I really love doing this, especially when things work out and someone comes alive on paper. This happened when I was drawing this curly-haired kid. A picture of a kid on Pinterest inspired me to draw this. What's funny is that almost always when I use a picture as reference, someone new appears on paper. Who is not the person I see on the picture. I love drawing people in general and I've always liked faces of mixed etnic backgrounds. It makes me wonder about where people came from and what their antropological background could be. When drawing this kid, everything worked (and this doesn't happen to me all the time, I mess things up a lot!). He (or she?, but to me it's a he) came alive and moved me. He became a real person to me with a story and a character of his own. I don't know about his story but it defintely feels like he's a boy with a history when I look at him. And maybe a history of his ancestors too.
