Grandpa by SharpWriter Grandpa by SharpWriter
I did this last year, and now finally have a good enough quality picture to post it.

Its a pencil rendering of my grandpa, done with Bic Sharpwriter pencils. Its quite large around 40 inches tall by something wide, I dont have a tape measure on me at the moment so my guessing will have to do.

This took forever.

It's so nice that you would draw this for your grandfather. :)

Would you consider a custom piece related to this? I have photos on my great grandfather pinning my father's tenderfoot, my grandfather pinning mine and my father pinning my son's. I've been trying to find someone who could do a sort of montage of the three...but for as many starving artists that are out there, it's harder than I ever thought it would be.

Nice, and I'm guessing in some ways the subject (him in a scout uniform) is a tribute to him as well.
