Comparatively, in my winter experience in Chicago, we've just emerged from a fairly mild season. However, because of being indoors with children, housing baby number two (leading to a shit immune system) and continuing to nurse the two fractures in my foot I feel like this spring is full of glory and hope like no other. What follows are two very tardy portraits; one, Bernie Sanders, a candidate for the Democratic Party in the upcoming election. Two, a portrait of an old friend and his gorgeous little girl. Both are great men and I'm honored to have their mugs in my portfolio.
