rama hughes & lauren hughes

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

this drawing of me and my sister, lali, was drawn by our mom, lauren hughes, during an actual portrait party. we'd been meaning to have one for months but couldn't get the whole family together in one room. my mom was so excited when it happened that she began her first drawing with a note "tonight's the night."

of course, i draw pretty much whenever i get a chance. so, when i caught my mom sleeping in the garage-turned-tv-room, i was excited to draw this picture. i was very worried that she would wake-up or stir. she slept like a crocodile though. only opening an eye now and then to moan in my direction. she woke up a long time later and i surprised her with the drawing.

Awesome! I love that your mother drew you and your sister with so much enthusiasm. That must be really cool.

Also, your drawing is gorgeous! The hole image is just perfect, Rama.

Very beautiful,Rama, it has a bit of a Beardley and nouveau art feeling to it, very appealing!!

thanks, everyone.

my mom is an illustrator too! sort of a lapsed illustrator at this point but she has done some beautiful work over the years.
