Hi all, In Celebration of my pride & joy Benjamin turning 2 this Sunday 25th, I thought I'd share this sketch I made of him late last night. I've always loved taking random photo's of Ben and there was something about the original photo and how it came about that inspired me to sketch it. I remember we were both at home alone and to keep an eye on him I took him and a bag of his favourite toys into in my studio, a place where it usually ends up with Ben tearing up paper, books and anything else he can get his little hands on. I was sitting at my computer desk engrossed in what I was doing and after about 20 miniutes or so I suddenly realised Ben had been unusually quiet and it wasn't until i swung my chair around that I found he had been sitting quietly on another chair watching me the whole time. I reached for the camera and before he had time to move/dispute having a camera in his face, I managed to snap a few pics.
