74 off the front porch

Pakou, pencil, 2 3/8" x 3 1/8"

Ah, laughter. That contagious song of joy; captured in this beautiful visage.  Abigail and Pakou (which in Hmong means golden flower) are two friends who collaborate on the blog Off The Front Porch, a title which, we are told, reflects their philosophy. Their blog revolves around creativity and discovery, and recent posts include topics such as how to speak with semi-colons, a tribute to treehouses, a photo essay on making egg rolls, and various examples of fine artistry.

I felt somewhat uplifted after drawing this happy face. Thanks Pakou! (I think it’s Pakou)

This is portrait 74 of 100.
