Ian and Josh leaning together - Pencil

Dear Friends

By DoctorPlatypus | Doctor Platypus | 20 Jul 2021

I need to get used to the idea that I am going to have extreme emotional responses after drawing certain subjects.

Today I drew my dear friends, Ian and his late husband Josh, and the picture of Josh came out a little more Joshly than the picture of Ian came out Ianly, but on the whole I am really very happy with it.

And now I am all wobbly and a little weepy.

Here's the picture:

I miss you Josh. So grateful to have had your friendship.
