Illustration Friday – Legendary

Anne
I chose to do a portrait from a photograph of my late sister Ann at age 5 years. She passed away in May 2002 from Motor Neuron Disease. She suffered with this horrible disease for 9 months. 

She will always be a legend in my mind… We all miss you Ann.

I thought I’d add the photo I used to sketch her from, as it’s always been a favourite.  I’ve also decided to do some more portraits of my family members – I’m No 6 of 6 infact.  So I’m gonna have my work cut out for me! 🙂
