2011, Ink On Napkin

In honor of Father’s Day this Sunday, I present these four self-portraits drawn by my dad on the same piece of napkin during our recent trip to Scotland. I glanced over one morning to see him doodling away at the kitchen table. While drawing is something that’s occupied a good part of my own life, it’s a rare occasion when I actually see the old man applying pen to paper for something other than a crossword puzzle. When I caught glance of this particular work, I knew it was something I had to preserve for posterity, to whatever extent possible. The napkin was a little worse for wear by the end of the trip, but I’m glad I hung on to it.
