The purpose of this series is to show the important people who have influenced my life. Some photos I took myself, while others I asked to take photos to allow me to draw. I used a basic graphite pencil in order to create this artwork and decided to keep these portraits black and white. These drawings are important because they represent the love for my grandparents. These people have taught me the importance of family and love. I am very thankful to have all four of my grandparents alive and healthy and having my great grandma still be strong and beautiful living her life to the fullest. I wanted to create this to show my appreciation for them.
