This really nice dude I've never met before asked for his portrait, as he generously donated to my sister's Paypal account. You should do that too, I will draw you something really great. Here it is. Thanks Michael!
My friend Kumori's birthday is today, and since she is really great I drew her picture too. It has been ages since I've done portraits, hoping to do a bunch more.
Lately I have been practicing banjo and taking a banjo class at Jalopy. It's a really cheerful instrument and seems to help with cold weather restlessness. You should learn an instrument too. I am finding out that that whole neighborhood (Red Hook) is full of idiosyncratic old-time musicians and jam makers. (The jar kind and music kind).
