I have always struggled drawing my wife Yun. She has a very interesting face, which is beautiful. What makes it interesting is her nose. It is very regal and when drawing her you have to go for it. I like to exaggerate people's features because that's what makes my drawings have the personality they have. The only problem is that people love my drawings of OTHER people not so much of themselves. We were sitting on the beach and I asked Yun if I could draw her. Translation: can you sit still? For some reason Yun can't sit still. If I start drawing her face, she puts on her sunglasses. If I start drawing her hat she nods off and starts sleeping in a different position. If I draw her hand, she starts leafing through her paperback. I can't win. Through it all I managed to get this drawing done. I like it a lot and Yun mildly approved. I consider that a victory.
