Blind Contour Friday 15 - CRAZY PORTRAITS

This is a drawing of my grandchild.


Well, actually, he is more like my grand"nephew", and I his grand"aunt". Ah, yes, I am 31 years old and I have a darling 1 year old, extremely handsome grandchild we call Enzo. He is such a bundle of joy to be around. He isn't a fuzzy baby, and often times he just laughs and bounces around in his bed whever he gets excited watching the people around him.

Once again, for this sketch, i missed the spots on the page and drew the eyes further down the head, which moved his mouth and his stuck-out tongue outside his chin. He was leaning back on his favorite teddy and birdie printed pillow that time, laughing at everyone around him, and probably wondering what the frig we were all fuzzing about.

I enjoy being his new lola (Filipino word for grandparent). But "uncle" Nicky doesn't seem too happy with his new family position...

Ooooh cute. A grandma at 31? I have a friend at work who became a grandma at 41. I set up a email group with her name but called it granny. So now whenever I send her a note it's addressed to granny. I don't think I'm her favorite person right now. BCs are fun aren't they? And I love that you framed it.

Yay, really nice :) I like the fact that he has the word "baby" on his t-shirt, just in case we didn't know!

Actually, it said Baby Gap... but the "Gap" got lost somewhere at the bottom of the shirt. So i only got to draw the Baby part. Looking at it now, it did look like he was wearing an ID of some sort...hehe.
