I asked Carlos to send me some photos of his family
so I could use them as guides in drawings for my book
that will have many of my drawings and painting done at
Tacos Jalisco's restaurant.Taco Jalisco's. Carlos is an artist living and studying in San Francisco, but he comes home from time to time and can be found being a server in the restaurant, as you know if you have been following my Jalisco drawings on my blog for very long.
Here is Carlos with his cousin and sister who also work there. I'd like to believe that I have captured a tiny bit of their personalities in these if not exact likenesses. I always remind myself that drawings are not photos and mine are very much more caricatures than anything else to be sure. Carlos told me today that he thought I made him look like George Clooney. I was thinking Jay Leno!
I have grown very fond of this family. They all welcome me so warmly there.
Each one is very special.
Happy Paint Party Friday...thanks for stopping by and if you leave a comment thank you for that too!
