Glorious day with my students and colleague, Nancy Kirkpatrick, at Intersections Media Opportunities for Youth Society!  Lots of projects in the works that we’ll be sharing shortly.

But for now…

Part of our day was spent on a photoshoot and I was so inspired by the photos of Jacqueline that I just had to draw her.
