probably one of the best drawings i've ever done, based on this photograph by george plemper. the picture itself is hard not to get lost in and i always find myself trying to decipher what the young girl is thinking. i hope my drawing has done it at least a little justice. mr. plemper's photos from the '70s and '80s have inspired me so much. i think one of the most moving moments i've had was looking through them and seeing not only the photo i chose to draw, but also spotting this picture, and reading the last comment below it. it makes me both happy and terribly nostalgic for something i've never known to see someone identify and describe someone in such a fond manner, despite the fact that he hadn't even seen him since grade school. wherever keith childs is, i hope he is still rebellious and a good mate.
