The creative adult is the child who survived.
This was a commission I have just completed which consists of colour that I have not used before since high school. The drawing is of Jonah Lomu, one of the greatest rugby players ever who died at a young age from kidney cancer (drawn here playing against the Irish in 2001). The flag in the background is the Red Peak Flag, which was one of the flag change options when John Key was in Parliament. Probably the most tedious commission I have done but was enjoyable at the same time.
