portrait 94: lex’s smile and the background story

Lex, pencil, 1 15/16" x 3 1/8"

About The Background Story:


The letters you write but never send, the pages you tear that no one has read,
the words you say under your breath, the lives you lead inside your head …

You will find them all here.

We write the stories you will never tell.

“By the way, I’m Lex.  I’m just one of four friends who are running The Background Story (http://thebackgroundstory.com). I contribute there as a writer, and I go by the initial L (the others are C, A, and M; together, we form CALM hahaha).”

I believe Lex’s birthday is around this time- happy birthday, Lex!! And what a smile! Thank you for brightening my day.

This is portrait 94 of 100.
