18" x 24" Drawing, Charcoal, 2013
This was the second ever commissioned JMF drawing, and is not only among JMF's best client work to date, but is among the most photorealistic renderings. When a coworker, Michelle, approached with a photograph of her children, it was obvious the faces had to be perfect without question. After printing a snapshot of the original image, making measurements, and scaling the image to the full drawing size, the entire drawing took 21 hours to complete. Upon delivery, Michelle confessed "it should have cost 8 times more!"
