Illustration Friday : TEACHER

This weeks theme for illustration friday is TEACHER so I decided to do a watercolour of the sketch from my Sketchbook Limited Edition book. This is of course my Grandad who I believe inspired me, taught me, and was the best teacher I ever had. He made me feel like I could do anything with my art. He was an amazing artist and I am one of his pieces of artwork too. Sadly he passed away in 1993 but I recently had his signature, taken from one of his drawings, tattooed on my foot, just like a painting.

  1. You are such a wonderful and talented artist! It certainly is a great tribute to your grandfather and I’m such he’s so proud of you (:

    This picture speaks so much to me. One reason being I am a teacher and I hope that through my occupation, I will be able to inspire and teach my students not just the content required for the exams, but the values and skills in life.

  3. This is so sweet! He sounds like such a wonderful man. My pampa (grandpa) was so warm and wonderful too, but he died when I was only 4 or 5 years old so I barely remember much about him. I just remember he made me feel really happy. 🙂 Grandpas are so cool.
