An observational 5x7" graphite pencil drawing of a hand-made yarn lizard from my mom's childhood. After Mom died last year, I really wanted this little guy, but my dad didn't want to give him up at first. After some light pleading, he finally let me have the lizard, and he's been sitting on my shelf ever since. I made this drawing as a gift for my dad on his birthday today, December 15th. I decided to challenge myself a bit and use pencil, a drawing medium I don't typically use.
