Diane’s brother Mike, out in Los Angeles area, came up with an idea forĀ  his pal, a fellow musician. Mike wanted to give him a special gift the fellow would absolutely LOVE — a drawing of him playing his favorite guitar.

So Mike emailed photos of the gentleman and his very specific six-string. I did up a rough pencil layout for Mike to review and approve and then a detailed pencil with resemblance. Also approved. Then the BW and finally the color…

We hear now that Nate and his wife were both VERY surprised — and utterly adored the sketch. A successful surprise gift! Great to hear!
