The faces seen here may be better known in some countries or areas, but in a general sense they are lesser known or have fallen entirely into obscurity. It is always a great joy to me to discover these people, so much so that I am often inspired to draw them. An even greater pleasure is later discovering these same people were often humble and kind. And so I draw them with much care and love. I sincerely hope their sweetness is reflected in my drawings of them.
