Illustration Friday : Wise


Dari Doba... thats what we called him, because he was the only person in our family who sported a beard... He had an affinity for cigarettes, whiskey, pocket watches and cowboy hats... Whenever I used to visit his room, I could smell the same smoke from the Navy Cut cigarettes he used to smoke...

last vacation when i went back home, i entered his room... and i could get a whiff of navy cut... the smell refuses to leave his room, just like he refused to leave his cigarettes when he got sick...He was one of the wisest people that i have ever known, but i guess, he wasn't wise enough to leave his cigarettes before things got bad...

I know what you mean...I had an uncle like that, who said, "you're gonna die from something, make it something you like." Thoughtful post and wonderful drawing as usual.

This turned out real nice. It has a feel of an older generation. He must have be very wise. You can always remember him.

What a cool illustration--caught mid-way between figurative and abstract.
