Recently a reader wrote to commission me to do a portrait of herself and her husband. Yes, I do commissions (though I’m not taking any new ones until after the new year), but not women. I just don’t think I can have fun and at the same time do them justice.
Female subjects get really upset when you draw in their wrinkles, so I think I’ll just avoid that whole issue and stick to dogs, birds, men with beards, vegetables, and rocks. And women I will never meet, like this woman from @earthsworld.
