this is a portrait of my favorite model, lali hughes, my sister.

not everyone can inspire a drawing from any angle, oblige an artist at any moment, and be still without being rigid. my sister can do all those things. and she is a font of insight and common sense. and she knows stuff about cars like: "when your windshild is clouding up, turn on your a.c., set the thermostat to middle, and press the defrost button." it works everytime and i always think "wow, lali. what a genius!"
