alexis is a fantastic artist who i invited to trade portraits last year. i was actually kind of relieved that she didn't follow up on my offer because i hadn't imagined that this portrait party project would be popular. it's not easy to keep up with the portraits swaps. a few months ago though, alexis surprised me with this portrait (below). i woke up very early one morning to draw my response (above).
for the record, my mustache was never so impressive!
