Ya! I got it! That’s them alright!

It just hit me how many different kinds of smiles there are out there and how many I’ve captures on paper! Smiles and eyes are almost like fingerprints - no two seem to be exactly alike. It’s fun when you can draw someone’s and you say to yourself, “Ya! I got it! That’s them alright!”

And kids … it’s funny when their parent will say, “Okay, smile!” and they give you the most fake smile imaginable. So you accept it but you don’t draw it and before you know it, that fake smile relaxes and you finally get a glimpse of the real one. I’m getting pretty good at spotting the fake ones.

But the best smiles are the ones you get when you show people their caricature!
