Thank you to all those who have served this great nation of ours!
Those of you who have followed my work may already know that I have an ongoing tribute to veterans. I’ve painted portraits of several of our local veterans from the Korean War, Vietnam War and World War II (See portraits below). I planned on doing some more this year, to continue the series, but, the pandemic slowed things down in that regard. Nevertheless, I’d like to thank these veterans and all of the veterans of our military branches for their service and would like to say that I am personally grateful for the liberty their efforts have afforded us all as a people.
The portraits below were commissioned for a poster by the local VA equal opportunity department. The poster was to include veterans of Pacific Islander heritage. The veterans were all stationed at Fairchild AFB, WA

This was my first time participating and completing the Inktober challenge. It was fun to get back to pen and ink drawing since I work mostly with digital media nowadays. I have to say, the most difficult part was to stay on task every day of the month. On one occasion, I didn’t get the assignment done until 9 p.m.
My personal goal was not only to draw the assigned subject on the day prescribed, but to limit my drawings to 5 minutes or less (most were done in less than two minutes).
