tyger tyger

February 14, 2010
Yesterday Amber and I drove up to her folks' in New Hampshire.

On the trip she suggested I draw her a Valentine's Day Tiger, in double honor of Valentine's Day and the Chinese New Year - the year of the Tiger, which happens to be my year.

Not my finest work, but it was a bumpy trip.

On her folks' fridge was a picture of her as a young girl --

I like both the color/light of that, and her bemused/startled expression... kind of a less glossy / less mean version of Jill Greenberg's work with kids portraits.
