So like most big events in my life I've ended up doing a few drawings of young Max. It's been kinda nice to go back to the Alledaags style too - having moments where I feel like I could keep going with these and put 200 People on ice for a while (Alledaags sequel of sorts - 'a year of parenting' or something?)... but I also don't want to be the type of parent who goes on and on and on about their kids. We'll see how it goes I guess.
A few weeks ago Alex from Baltimore contacted me asking if I'd do a portrait of her boyfriend for their anniversary, and the glowing way she described him, well, I just couldn't say no. Let's just say he sounds like a great guy - helping Alex through some full-on times with a lot of love and optimism and they sound like a great pair. He has started a couple of magazines including Pluck for young people starting out in these tough economic times which I think is cool, does work for conservation causes, loves dogs and cooking and travel and the outdoors and is famous among their friends for a certain spectacular dance.
I saw a video, it's pretty awesome.
